Your Choice 2020 Primary Election Coverage

Your Choice 2020 Primary Election Coverage

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - HOMTV continues its tradition of excellence with award-winning election programming. Your Choice 2020 is a series of programs designed to help educate the public on candidates running for office and ballot proposals. Primary Election Day is August 4th and four local contested races will be covered as well as two Ingham County ballot proposals.

Election programs include candidate interviews, ballot proposal features and live election night coverage. Due to COVID-19 and construction occurring in HOMTV’s Studio and Control Room, this year’s election coverage is being conducted virtually utilizing the Zoom Video Communications Platform.

Candidate interviews and ballot proposal programs will air the entire month of July. Live Primary Election Night Coverage will begin at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, August 4th.

Comcast Cable subscribers in East Lansing, Haslett and Okemos can view the programs by turning to Channel 21 and Channel 30. AT&T U-verse subscribers can view the programs on Channel 99. These programs will also be available on demand on HOMTV’s website.
