All students and community members are invited to attend this event as they prepare to cast informed votes on November 6.

Dean of Students Jim Wiltgen, the sheriff of the voting site located on the Hendrix College campus, will inform all voters, many of them first-time voters, about the newly revamped voting process. Dr. Jay Barth, the M.E. and Ima Graves Peace Distinguished Professor of Politics and director of the Odyssey Program, will provide an overview of the measures on the Arkansas ballot and present the arguments put forward by proponents and opponents of each of them.
