Statement on policy recording/airing of public candidate forums

League of Women Voters Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit


The League of Women Voters Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit (LWVBHNPS) provides the public with unedited videotapes of our candidate forums. We show the forums in their entirety, whether on the Internet or public access television. The LWVBHNPS does not support or oppose any candidate, and when League-sponsored debates are videotaped, the LWVBHNPS expects that the event will be shown in its entirety, without editing or commentary.


In addition, any use of the League name or of footage from the forum in Campaign materials, literature or advertising of any kind including Internet, cable or television has not been authorized by the League of Women Voters Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit. 


This policy is based on guidance from the League of Women Voters of the United States. 


We will continue to videotape our forums and make the complete, unedited video available to the public.
