Write-In Vote Count Programming Available Live on Gavel-to-Gavel

Dave Donaldson, APRN – Juneau

Public Television will let you watch the count of the write-in votes in the race for the U.S. Senate – on your TV or computer. KTOO television in Juneau provides the live Gavel-to-Gavel coverage of the legislative session – along with other public affairs programming – statewide. And beginning Wednesday, Bill Legere, the station’s president and general manager, says the service will offer a live continuous video coverage of the vote-counting process in Juneau.

Legere says the service is part of the ongoing philosophy of Gavel-to-Gavel – to show people things they would not ordinarily be able to see. He says the only people that will be allowed into the building are Elections offices, officially recognized observers and the media. The service will be available on cable channels that provide Gavel-to-Gavel during the legislative session and the 360-North channel during the rest of the year. It will also be available on the internet at www.360north.org.
