Cox On DEMAND Launches Election Info Area

In an effort to help voters understand more about the candidates for mayoral, city council and city ward races in Clark County during the upcoming election, Cox Communications-Las Vegas and Cox Media launched Elections 2011 On DEMAND.

The current election cycle involves candidates from Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas.

Elections 2011 On DEMAND provides the means for voters to view a two-minute, educational “candidate vignette” on its On DEMAND platform via Cox Channel 1. The company’s News and Public Affairs department is providing all candidates with an opportunity to speak frankly about their candidacy or any issues. However, as opposed to the more common 30-second political television spot, the On DEMAND vignettes may not contain references to other candidates or political campaigns. Mudslinging or derogatory remarks are also not allowed.

Elections 2011 On DEMAND is being provided by Cox Las Vegas as a community service without any cost to candidates. The service will be available through Election Day on April 5.

The Cox On DEMAND platform is unique in that viewers can access its content at anytime day or night using the Cox remote control. In addition, On DEMAND content can be stopped, paused and rewound. All vignettes can be accessed by navigating to Cox Channel 1 -- Freezone -- Elections 2011 and then selecting specific races.
