Listen to the North Carolina Legislature Live (or Re-broadcast)

Wanna know what your state legislature is doing?

For years, the General Assembly has had links to audio streaming of both houses that suffered from quality, and if you missed something, that was it, there were no second chances to hear the audio.

Now, there is Voter Radio. Voter Radio has a player [launch player] that will play audio from past sessions (fixed schedule), and with other programming 24 hours a day.

They also have podcasts of each day's sessions available to download!

According tho the website, Voter Radio is a project of the N.C. Center for Voter Education.

Here is the Press Release that announced the start of Voter Radio:

RALEIGH – The nonpartisan N.C. Center for Voter Education has launched VoterRadio.com, an online radio station covering politics and elections in North Carolina.

With state lawmakers at work in Raleigh, VoterRadio.com offers live broadcasts and rebroadcasts of daily sessions in both the N.C. Senate and N.C. House. Each session can also be heard on-demand at VoterRadio.com, where visitors can also download podcasts of daily sessions.

Other programming on VoterRadio.com includes “Judge for Yourself: Election 2008,” a series of in-depth, one-on-one interviews with statewide candidates. With a runoff election for state labor commissioner approaching on June 24, voters can learn about the two contenders, John Brooks and Mary Donnan, by tuning in to VoterRadio.com’s live stream or by listening on-demand at VoterRadio.com/judge.

VoterRadio.com produces “The Voter Update,” a weekly newsmagazine covering Tar Heel politics. This week’s episode features an interview with N.C. House Minority Leader Paul Stam (R-Wake) and a look at Chapel Hill’s new Voter-Owned Elections program with Chase Foster from N.C. Voters for Clean Elections.

VoterRadio.com also covers special events and speakers of importance to North Carolina voters, including the Sunshine Day Conference at Elon University this spring.

“From airing live audio of state legislative sessions, to offering in-depth interviews with statewide candidates, the goal of VoterRadio.com is to empower North Carolina voters with facts about their government and the candidates courting their support,” said John Thompson, executive director of the N.C. Center for Voter Education.

In addition to being available at www.VoterRadio.com, programming from VoterRadio.com can also be heard 24-hours daily on iTunes Radio under the “Talk/Spoken Word” category.

The N.C. Center for Voter Education is a Raleigh-based nonprofit and nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving elections in North Carolina.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
