2929-S Eskridge Road in the Mosaic District of Fairfax "Inside Scoop" Candidate Forum featuring State Senate & House Candidates. This year we are trying something different because there are so many candidates. For the State Senate and the House of Delegates candidates, the event will be broadcast live on a special extended edition of "Inside Scoop" (Fairfax Public Access television).

All of the candidates have been invited to respond to questions from a studio audience for an hour and then to meet with the public informally in a conference room next to the studio. Viewers at home will be able to e-mail or phone in questions during the broadcast to or 1-571-749-1166. To join the live audience, go to the studio. Directions are on the Channel 10 website. To stream the program, go to Ten minutes before the program starts, touch the WATCH LIVE button on the screen. The streaming will last till the program ends. A videotape of the broadcast will be posted both on the League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area (LWVFA) website and on YouTube.
