Ballot forum hosted by women-oriented groups not aimed at women

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Two women-led groups hosted an election forum Wednesday night -- despite females being at the helm of the conversation, organizers say it wasn't necessarily aimed at women.

"We realize that we want everyone to vote -- it's very important," Jeannie Dunn, vice president of the American Association of University Women, said. "We certainly want to encourage all of our citizens, men and women, to vote."

The League of Women Voters and American Association of University Women both say they support female voters -- but the Wednesday event was aimed at everyone.

The forum was widely attended by both men and women.

Group organizers say it's important for everyone to understand the big ticket items you'll see on your ballot come November.
