Election day is a month away and the Pima County Public Library is hosting meetings to help inform the community about upcoming ballot measures.

The meetings will be Fri., Oct. 5, at Joel D. Valdez Main Library and Sat., Oct. 6, at Murphy-Wilmot Branch Library. They are free and will cover the nine proposed ballot measures.

The League of Women Voters is presenting information on the measures intended to be impartial so people can make their own interpretations when going to the polls.
