Video Voters Guide for November general election now available on King County TV
King County and Seattle editions will run through November 5
The ballots for the 2013 General Election are on their way to voters and King County TV is set to provide you information on the regional races on your ballot with the launching of its Video Voters Guide for the November 5 general election.
The non-partisan video guide offers candidates on the ballot up to two minutes to issue a prepared statement that outlines the key planks of their platform. The candidates and issues appear onscreen in the same order as they do on the ballot.
The 2013 Video Voters Guide will include statements for both countywide ballot issues as well as statements from candidates in the city of Seattle.
The King County portion will include candidates on the ballot for King County Executive, Metropolitan King County Council and Port of Seattle Commissioner. There will also be statements from representatives on two measures on the county ballot: King County Charter Amendment 1, which authorizes the creation of a new county Department of Public Defense and King County Proposition 1, which replaces an expiring levy to continue funding of Medic One emergency medical services.
The Seattle edition of the Video Voters’ Guide features candidates who will appear on the ballot for the offices of Seattle mayor, Seattle City Council and Seattle School Board.
King County TV will carry the Video Voters Guide at various times on Comcast and Wave Cable 22. You can find specific viewing times at www.kingcounty.gov/kctv. The programs are also carried on the Seattle Channel and many local government access channels on Cable 21.
The programs are also available online at: www.kingcounty.gov/kctv/vvg.
The Video Voters is a collaboration of King County TV, the Seattle Channel, King County Elections, and the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission.
King County TV provides a transparent view into the operations of County government and the issues affecting our region. It can be seen in 450,000 cable households throughout King County.
