This election season, KBOO is doing our election coverage a bit differently. We want to know what our listeners and community is most concerned about. What do you want candidates to be talking about? Are you most concerned about housing, the environment or transportation?

Please fill out our survey here.

With this information, we will publish our own "Citizen's Agenda" that will be the foundation of our election coverage. It will be a living document of what our community needs in order to make their decision this November. This will help our news team and our programmers focus in on what is most important to those we serve, and not get swept up in the next media storm. 

Plus, we are able to offer a sweepstakes for those who fill out the survey — if you fill out the survey and give us your contact information, you will be entered to win a $50 Visa prepaid gift card. See the sweepstakes rules below.

Vision Statement:

Our election coverage will center around our community — we want to know what our listeners are curious about this election season and make sure they are informed on where candidates stand. We will be using feedback from our listeners to shape our coverage. The issues that are important to our audience will be the bedrock of our reporting as Election Day approaches. That helps our team focus on the crucial reporting for our community and allows our audience to compare candidates on a common set of criteria. While we don’t know exactly what November will bring, we do know that informed voters are critical to our democracy and we want to do our part. 

Thank you so much for your support of KBOO and for filling out our survey.
