Get Out & Vote

Your Vote IS Your Voice

It's Town Meeting time again and VCAM and CCTV are once again collaborating on the Vermont blogging project, Exit Voices.

Exit Voices is a Vermont blogging experiment. In November of 2006, Vermont Community Access Media and the CCTV Center for Media and Democracy joined forces to create an online public forum where Vermonters could discuss the issues and candidates on the ballot in that election cycle. The result was Exit Voices, a moderated community blog specifically designed to be a sounding board for voters who had more to say than just speaking with their votes. The blog featured posts by prominent Vermont bloggers, video interviews with voters exiting their polling places and comments by anyone who cared to participate.

On the evening of the 4th, CCTV (Comcast and Burlington Telecom channel 17 in the greater Burlington area) will include comments and video posts from the blog in its live election night coverage. CCTV's coverage will also be streamed live online at cctv.org.
