Smokeout!! Info on competing ballot measures will mail soon <BR>
PRESCOTT – With just more than a month until Prescott voters decide whether to ban smoking in virtually all public places, city and county election officials are getting ready to mail out information that should shed some light on the issue.
The city's general election will take place on Nov. 4. And along with two candidates seeking a seat on the Prescott City Council, the ballot also will include two voter initiatives that deal with smoking.
State law requires the city to compile a publicity pamphlet that aids voters in understanding the initiatives.
Within the next week or so, the 23-page publicity pamphlet will go out by mail to all registered Prescott voters. Not only does the pamphlet include an explanation of the two initiatives, but it also includes about a dozen arguments for and against the two initiatives.
