The El Paso Community College (EPCC) Political Forums Committee will hold primary debates and town halls ahead of the March 6, 2018 primary elections.
The largest of these events will be a Super Thursday debate with the candidates for the 16th Congressional District seat, 6:00 p.m., Thursday, February 15th at the EPCC Administrative Services Center Building A Auditorium at 9050 Viscount Boulevard.
“Most people don’t worry too much about the primaries, so they save their voting power for the general elections. We think it is crucial for voters to elect the best nominee from each party,” EPCC SGA Secretary and Political Forums Chair, Bryan Mena said.
“We hope to mobilize both our students and the general public,” Mena added.
The Political Forums Committee is made up of EPCC students, staff and faculty.
