PHOENIX (AP) -- Secretary of State Ken Bennett plans to hold 25 town halls around Arizona during October for voters to learn about initiatives and referendums appearing on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.

The town halls begin Oct. 2 in Kingman and wrap up Oct. 30 in Wickenburg. Other locations include Lake Havasu City, Yuma, Prescott, Florence, Flagstaff, Tucson and Sun City West.

Bennett's office says the town halls are intended to provide voters a chance to ask questions of supporters and opponents of the ballot measures.

Propositions on the ballot include initiatives on a sales tax increase and changes to Arizona's primary election system.
