The Alabama Voter
Summer 2010 Edition
Published July 19, 2010
The League of Women of Voters of Alabama is going full steam ahead with our plans for two gubernatorial debates this fall. The first will be held September 16th at the University of Alabama, and then second on October 19th at Auburn. We are cosponsoring the series with the two Student Government Associations (SGAs) at UA and Auburn, the respective local chambers of commerce, and the Alabama Disabilities Advocacy Program (ADAP). Both forums will begin at 7:00 P.M. and last one hour. The forums will be featured in local newspapers through “al.com” plus other media, and broadcast statewide on Alabama Public Television and Alabama Public Radio.
Democratic nominee Ron Sparks has already committed, and we have been in touch with the Alabama Republican Party and the two candidates who will face each other in the July 13rd run-off, Robert Bentley and Bradley Byrne. The League is in charge of developing the questions, which will not be released in advance.
What can local leagues do?
