View Washington local candidate forums on cable TV, online

By Evan Smith

Viewers can see recent candidate forums on local public-access cable TV channels and on the web.

They can watch a forum for congressional, legislative and statewide candidates daily at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the Edmonds city public access channel. The forum, sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce Oct. 10, included candidates for the 21st and 32nd legislative districts, the 7th Congressional District, U.S. senator and state superintendent of public instruction.

Forums from Oct. 11 and 18 are on the Edmonds Community College public access channel and the college web site. Neither representatives of the college nor representatives of the sponsoring Snohomish County League of Women Voters was able to give the schedule of TV broadcasts. The forums stream on the September 2016 news portion of the college web site. The Oct. 11 forum featured candidates in the 1st, 2nd and 7th congressional districts. The Oct. 18 forum included candidates in the 21st and 32nd legislative districts.
