On March 12th, voters in Amherst will be voting on town and school officers, as well as budgets and other warrant articles. In preparation for these elections, there have been many public meetings and official election meetings, all of which were televised and recorded for later replay.
The Town Deliberative Session, held February 7th, is replaying multiple times per day on Channel 20.
The Amherst School District and Souhegan Cooperstive School District Deliberative Sessions, held February 2nd, are replaying on Channel 21.
A Candidates Night, sponsored by the AAUW, was held on February 21, with candidates for all Town and School opening invited. It is also replaying frequently on Channel 21.
All three Deliberative Sessions, plus the Candidates Night, are available on demand at amherstnh.pegcentral.com.
Playing times for the Deliberatives and Candidates Night will vary, because they are so long and they are squeezed in among regularly scheduled programs. In some cases, the start times will vary week-to-week as the programs before them change and are longer are shorter. For example, the current schedule for the Candidates Night is:
- Sunday: 3:30AM, 4:45PM
- Monday: 6:00AM, 8:50AM, 4:50PM
- Tuesday: 9:35AM, 2:32PM
- Wednesday: 6:00AM, 5:25PM
- Thursday: 9:26AM
- Friday: 1:31AM, 4:00PM
- Saturday: 6:00PM
Some of these times are sure to change as soon as the next Selectmen’s meeting happens, which will change the replay length for that, and then ripple out everything that is scheduled after each replay.
The online schedule will not be updated to show the times, as the changes are too complex to keep up with. The only true and accurate schedule is the Program Schedule that runs between and after each program on the channel (usually for 30 seconds), which shows the correct start times for the next 10 scheduled programs.
