ST. GEORGE — Voters will have the opportunity to meet all the Republican candidates (or their representatives) at a fun, family event organized by the Washington County Republican Women.

This “Meet and Greet” will be held Saturday, Oct. 8, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the St. George Town Square Park located at 50 S. Main Street.

“This will be an easy way for voters to visit with candidates face-to-face and get to know them better. There will be at least 10 different candidates at this one event so in a short period of time you can get information about them, see what they are like, and ask questions directly,” Judy Houston, President of the Washington County Republican Women, said.

“It’s important for citizens to know who they are voting for, especially in local elections where the outcome more directly affects our community and personal lives,” she said.

Families are welcome at this free event. There will be activities for children, food and entertainment. Each candidate will have a booth and attendees will be encouraged to visit each one to find out a piece of information and fill out a questionnaire card. Those that complete their card will be entered into a prize drawing.

The candidates or their representatives participating in the event are Gov. Gary Herbert, Sen. Mike Lee, Rep. Chris Stewart, Attorney General Sean Reyes, Utah Auditor John Dougall and Utah Treasurer David Damschen. Also participating are candidates for the state House of Representatives Brad Last, Lowry Snow, Jon Stanard and Walt Brooks; candidate for State Senate Don Ipson; and candidate for Washington County Commission Dean Cox.

The 2016 General Election will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Early voting begins on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at various locations around the county and ends Friday, Nov. 4.

More information can be found by visiting Washington County Republican Women online.
