Learn about the initiatives on the November ballot and score some free nachos at a question-and-answer session sponsored by Zeeks Pizza in the Issaquah Highlands.
Jeff Wood, a local professor of civic and U.S. government affairs, is scheduled to answer questions at the restaurant, 2525 N.E. Park Drive, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25.
The nonpartisan event has been set up to better explain the information in the voters’ pamphlet to help Issaquah residents make informed decisions about the state initiatives on the ballot. TV spots, as many voters know, can be misleading.
The restaurant plans to provide free nachos to participants at the hourlong event.
Measures on the ballot include a proposal to impose a state income tax on high earners, privatize the state-run liquor industry and restore tougher rules for the Legislature to raise taxes. Election Day is Nov. 2.
