About Candidate Statements
This election season service benefits voters and candidates running for office in San Diego County. Candidate Statements are 5-minute video programs that allow candidates to explain why they are running for office and share their positions on the issues and topics of concern to voters.
KOCT charges a nominal $300 for this service which includes professional studio lighting, audio, and teleprompter. KOCT then broadcasts and streams these programs extensively in the months leading up to the election and posts the program as Video On Demand on KOCT.ORG.
Candidates may choose, instead, to provide a five-minute or less statement via digital format – hightail, dropbox, etc – to KOCT@KOCT.org. These statements will be included in KOCT’s edited Candidate Statements at no charge. KOCT must receive your five-minute segment prior to September 12th, and must be in the same requirements as our other KOCT recorded Candidate Statements. Please visit koct.org/election-programming for more information.
