The North Olympic Peninsula's two voices in the state House of Representatives will host a telephone town hall for thousands of 24th District voters from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. today.

State Reps. Steve Tharinger and Kevin Van de Wege, both Sequim Democrats, will answer questions from callers, their offices said.

Every registered voter with a land-based telephone line in the 24th District will receive a call on or around that time and be invited to participate, Van de Wege said in an interview last week.

Those outside of the district or with cellphones as their only phone line can phone toll-free 877-229-8493 and enter 18646 on their phone's number pad when prompted to connect to the call.

Once connected, callers can press No. 3 on their phones to ask a question.

Tharinger and Van de Wege, along with state Sen. and Hoquiam Democrat Jim Hargrove, represent the 24th Legislative District, which comprises all of Clallam and Jefferson counties and a third of Grays Harbor County.
