UPDATE #2, 10/14/10: The League of Women Voters has kindly and promptly responded regarding debate viewer access. There was apparently some misinformation about the carrier of the live debate (Novato public access, not Comcast Ch. 26) so I haven’t heard from anyone yet who saw it. Here though is the email info I received:
The debate was live on Novato Public Access TV, not Channel 27 in the rest of Marin.The schedules for cablecastings and websites for watching debates online are here:League of Women Voters of Marin County: http://www.marinlwv.org/candidate_debates/Community Media Center of Marin: http://cmcm.tv/2010electionsI expect last night’s 6th CD debate and cablecasting schedules to become available sometime today.
It would have been helpful if the League had published the information about transmitting it live on the Novato public access channel before the debate. Nowhere on their links above was it mentioned. Also, it’s been a long time since I lived in Marin County. Can the entire county get Novato public access?
UPDATE: Looks like the debate is not being shown live. You can email the League of Women Voters here ( firstname.lastname@example.org) to ask the dates/times when it will be shown on TV/online.
As posted on Petaluma360, there will be a debate between Jim Judd (R), Joel Smolin (L), and Lynn Woolsey (D) tonight beginning “at 7pm on Marin Comcast Channel 26 & A T & T Channel 99.”
Remember, this is a closed debate. The Leage of Women Voters refused to hold the debate in a space that could accommodate voters. However, do whatever you can to see it. If you live in Marin, you can see it live on TV. If you don’t, there is a live online stream of Marin Comcast Ch. 26, which I hope will work splendidly tonight at 7:00 p.m.
