Story

As ballots arrive for the August 1, 2017 primary election, King County Television (KCTV) is making the Video Voters’ Guide, which provide voters information on the candidates and issues on the primary ballot, available through your TV, computer or mobile device.

“Making this information available on multiple platforms provides voters with the opportunity to hear from the candidates and about the issues in a way that is both convenient and accessible,” said James Burns, KCTV Station Manager.

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 2017 Video Voters’ Guide will include statements for the countywide ballot issue King County Cultural Access Program (Access for All) as well as statements from candidates in races in the city of Seattle (Mayor, City Council and School Board candidates), Port of Seattle and King County Executive.

King County TV will carry the Video Voters’ Guide at various times on Comcast Cable (Channel 22 and HD channel 322) and Wave Cable (Channel 22 and HD Channel 722). 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 Guide is a collaboration of King County TV, the Seattle Channel, King County Elections, and the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission.
