Elections study group plans Grand Junction meeting

An upcoming meeting in Grand Junction will offer participants an opportunity to talk about presidential primary elections in Colorado.

The meeting is set for 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. July 30 in the Grand Junction City Hall auditorium, 250 N. Fifth St. Voters are encouraged to attend regardless of their political affiliation.

The Grand Junction meeting is one of three planned for locations across Colorado and follows a meeting in Denver in June of the Colorado Elections Study Group.

State Sen. Ray Scott — a Republican from Grand Junction who chairs the Senate Veterans and State Affairs Committee, which reviews election-related legislation — will chair the Grand Junction meeting.

“We hope the July 30 meeting in Grand Junction will build on the success of the June 11 meeting in Denver,” Scott said. “In the June meeting in Denver, we had over 30 experts and citizen witnesses offer their views on key election reform issues. We want to hear from the citizens on the Western Slope as well.”
