August 4, 2009 · 11:34 AM
With mail ballots now in the hands of voters, King County TV is debuting two new editions of the biennial Video Voters Guide for the August primary, one for King County races and one for Seattle.
King County TV will carry both editions of the Video Voters Guide at various times starting this weekend on Comcast and Broadstripe 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 King County edition includes candidates for the countywide offices of King County Executive, the Metropolitan King County Council and the Port of Seattle Commission.
Each of the statements is up to two minutes long and unedited. The candidates and issues appear on screen in the same order as they do on the ballot.
A special Chinese language edition of both Video Voter Guides is also available online through the King County Elections Chinese language page at: www.kingcounty.gov/elections/chinese.
The Video Voters Guide is a collaboration of King County TV, the Seattle Channel, King County Elections and the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission.
All versions of the guide will run through the Aug. 18 postmark date for mail-in ballots
King County TV provides a transparent view into the operations of county government and the issues affecting the region. It can be seen in 450,000 cable households throughout King County.
