UEN-TV will broadcast the Fourth Congressional District Debate between Mia Love (R) and Doug Owens (D) - Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.
Utah public broadcasters are again joining forces in a unique collaboration to inform voters statewide about candidates and issues. Working together under the banner of VoteUtah 2014, the innovative project represents a commitment to explore the political process in a balanced approach and provide avenues for citizen engagement.
The Utah Education Network, KUED-Channel 7, KBYU-Channel 11 have teamed with public radio stations KUER-FM 90.1, Classical 89/KBYU-FM, KCPW-Salt Lake City, KPCW-Park City, Utah Public Radio, KZMU-Moab, CEC-TV-St. George, and KXDS 91.3-St. George.
The VoteUtah partnership, which was formed in 2012, is joining with commercial broadcasters to simultaneously air debates produced by the newly-formed Utah Debate Commission.
The debates will also be streamed live online at voteutah.org.
KUED will again produce a series of three-minute Candidate Free SpeechMessages, giving all ballot-qualified candidates for Congressional and Attorney General races three minutes in which to present their message to the public. Stations in the VoteUtah 2014 collaboration can broadcast the messages in regularly selected time slots in the weeks leading up to the Friday before the general election. KUED also is producing Utah Political Minutes that describe brief moments in Utah’s political history. Voter Information Features produced by KBYU-Eleven offer Utahns important information on how to be prepared to cast their ballots on Election Day.
A central element of the VoteUtah 2014 collaboration is the website, voteutah.org, which includes information on all statewide or federal candidates for office in Utah, election reports and coverage from participating public broadcasters, information on other races within the state, Candidate Free Speech Messages, Utah Political Minutes, Voter Information Features, registration and voting district information, as well as streaming of televised debates.
KBYU’s live election night coverage, which features exit polling and candidate coverage, will be hosted by Verdoia and Magleby, who has offered years of comprehensive exit polling to accurately forecast the outcome of Utah’s elections. The coverage also will be streamed on voteutah.org beginning at 6:00 p.m. election night.
Utah Education Network, with its connection to schools, educators and students statewide, is creating and distributing educational material for the project
