Blogging at the Polls

If you watch Network TV you know theelection is coming up soon. We figure you have more opinions than can fit on aballot card and we want you to be able to let us and everyone else know whatthey are! To this end Channel 17, VCAM and other area access stations andcommunity "bloggers" will be setting up blog stations at selectpolling locations around the city. You can sit down and type it out there or gohome and spout off in front of your own screen. Comments from these blogs willbe available on view for your neighbors to read and selections will be readduring Channel 17's election night coverage. If filling in a box isn't enoughfor you, join the pudits and tell us what you think. Info: morourke@cctv.org

I think they're actually still looking for people to help organize this. Let 'em know if you're interested.

And they're also involved with the ACME Media Reform Conference happening in Burlington this weekend. Lots of workshops, lots of speakers coming. And hey, it costs lots of money. Looks like fun, if you can afford it.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
