Know the Candidates, 2014

video forumsThe League of Women Voters of Topeka Shawnee County and KTWU Public Television are partners again this election cycle to bring candidate interviews and forums to the voters of Northeast Kansas. KTWU's community affairs program "I've Got Issues" will host 30 minute interviews with the candidates for US Senate and Governor. The programs will be titled "Your Voice, Your Vote: IGI Election Special."

The air dates for the US Senate program will be September 25th and the program for governor will air October 23rd.

The programs will be taped and broadcast multiple time before the election.

The races for Secretary of State and 2nd Congressional District will be a forum format with the candidates at podiums. Nick Haines of KCPT will provide excellent moderating at the forums. We hope to have the forums broadcast live from the studio. If the candidates cannot mutually agree to a live date, then we will pursue a taped show with them.

Maryanna Quilty, LWV-Topeka and Shawnee County president, will keep the membership appraised of developments regarding the interviews and the forums as they become available. 8-17-2014
