With a growing demand for balanced factual information on current events it's a a time where a local perspective is most important for some of the community.
In a year where we face decisions and need to vote on a national election and referendums this has motivated Channel 39 - Southern Television to support production and broadcast of some locally relevant programming.
'You Choose' is the result of the demand for information on election issues and the production has been lead by volunteers with a passion for the topic.
The first episode covers many issues around the general election, enrolling to vote, the newly formed electorates and the upcoming referendum on cannabis.
The production team hit the streets to get a variety of views their thoughts surrounding the issues along with collecting some topical views from some of the candidates in the newly formed Taieri and Dunedin electorates.
