League of Women Voters to host seminar Oct. 13

Who are Arizona’s independent voters? “We are not a party. We are a mindset.” Independent voters are the largest “party” in Arizona. If Arizona’s independent voters become frequent voters, they could be a more moderate voice on Arizona’s political landscape (MorrisonInstitute.asu.edu). This forum is the last in Fall Seminar Series presented by the LWVCYC and OLLI. The presenter, Dr. David Daugherty, is a Senior Research Fellow overseeing polling and helping to manage on-going and single-project research studies and projects conducted by the Morrison Institute for Public Policy. Dr. Daugherty will present a clear picture of the makeup, mindset, and the possible impact of this group of independent voters on the political structure of Arizona, including discussing the questions: Why be independent? Why is voter turnout so low? How similar are established parties to independents? What are the important issues in Arizona? The seminar will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 13, at Yavapai College, 1100 E. Sheldon St., Prescott, building 3, Room 119. For more information see LWVCYC.org.
