Teens to meet with Davis, Simon campaigns,
then 'vote' on touch-screen machines

High school students from around the state will meet campaign representatives from the two major party candidates for governor, and then try out touch-screen voting machines in a mock election, on Thursday, Oct. 10.

The LegiSchool Project event will be from 1 to 2 p.m. in the auditorium of the Secretary of State's building, 1500 11th St. in Sacramento.

Students will learn about the priorities of Gov. Gray Davis and candidate Bill Simon, and quiz campaign representatives on issues such as education reform, public safety, health care and the state budget deficit. Students will also learn about some of the upcoming ballot initiatives.

The LegiSchool Project is an award-winning civic education program of California State University, Sacramento and the State Legislature, administered by the Center for California Studies.

Participants will include students from Hiram Johnson High and St. Francis High in Sacramento, Castro Valley High, San Juan High in Citrus Heights, Newbury Park High, Canyon High in Canyon Country, and PUC Preparatory in Angwin. Thousands of other students will view the forum on the California Channel or on videotape. Paula Gardner, a professor from the CSUS College of Education, will moderate.

More information is available by contacting LegiSchool Project director Kolleen Ostgaard at (916) 278-6906 or at www.csus.edu/calst/legischool.htm. Additional media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-4378.
