Election 2018: Forum Video Clips

Short videos of each race and measure from the two October election forums.

The following political forum videos have been produced by BenitoLink – San Benito County Farm Bureau – Youth Alliance to help our community prepare for the upcoming General Election which is being held Tuesday, Nov. 6.

The Election Forums were held at San Benito High School auditorium Oct. 11 and Oct.18. The BenitoLink – San Benito County Farm Bureau – Youth Alliance forums are a nonpartisan political event aimed at helping voters make informed decisions about their local elected leaders. BenitoLink and our partners appreciate the growing community interest and engagement in local political elections. Approximately 200 individuals attended the two and a half hour long event. 

The following short videos were recorded at the two October forums and have been edited into segments based on the race or measure for easy viewing.
