CCTV is committed to making sure that every Cambridge voter has the information to make an informed decision. This begins with the invitation to each candidate to record their personal statements (soon to be published below), and continues with the documentation of candidate forums throughout election season (links to all programs so far are below). Finally on November 7, CCTV will broadcast live from the City-wide Senior Center during the ballot count.

Watch our ELECTION 2017 Blocks on Channel 8, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8am and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm - from now up until Election Day.

Candidate forums are scheduled to broadcast live on Cambridge Cable Channel 8 and on CCTV's Facebook page. Recordings are then posted on CCTV's YouTube page.
