With the approaching November state elections, APN has invited each candidate on the ballot to participate in a candidate profile and debate.  We wish to provide our viewers with the most accurate information regarding the candidates as possible.

The format for each interview follows strict guidelines.  Each interview lasts 28 minutes and is live-to-tape, meaning there are no edits. The candidate is given one-minute for an opening and closing statement.  There is no pre-screening of questions and they have two minutes to answer each question.

The debate also follows strict guidelines.  Each debate lasts 1 hour and is live-to-tape.  Each candidate is awarded a one-minute opening and closing statement.  The moderator asks ten questions picked randomly out of a hat, each candidate may ask the other two questions each.

In addition to the candidates, APN is also hosting debates regarding the Ballot questions.  Expect to see a debate for Questions 1, 2, and 5. The debate follows the same guidelines as with the candidates.
