DOWNTOWN — CityTV, the government access cable channel for Santa Monica, has launched its “Vote 2010” line-up of Santa Monica election programming for the Nov. 2 election. Coverage includes the City Council race, school board, Rent Control Board and two ballot measures.
CityTV has also launched www.smvote.org as a centralized resource for Santa Monica election information. The website provides candidate statements, videos, CityTV election program schedules, an election events calendar and useful election links.
All of the CityTV’s election programming is produced in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica Education Fund and the Center for Governmental Studies.
“We’ve worked hard to make it easy for voters to learn about the candidates and their stands on the issues in this election,” said local League President Joanne Leavitt. “We have many ways for voters to access the information including on CityTV cable channel 16, 24/7 election programming on cable channel 77, www.smvote.org and Time Warner Video on Demand.”
A rotation of election programs airs 24 hours per day, 7 days per week on cable channel 77.
“CityTV is well known for its quality election programming,” said Tracy Westen, vice-chairman and CEO of the Center for Governmental Studies. “Our research has shown that they do the best programming in the country. Santa Monica voters are lucky to have such a great resource available to them 24/7 until Election Day.”
