5 Critical Questions is a Local 5 project providing voters an opportunity to learn more about what their candidates stand for.
We look to do this when there are two remaining candidates for office either in a contested single party primary with no other party running – or a final election.
The digitally exclusive project is different to a traditional debate in a few ways:
- Candidates are not in the same room when the questions are asked. This is important because it averts any kind of debate tactic, influence, drama, or digression from the issues.
- The two candidates answer the same exact five questions, asked in the exact same way. This allows the viewer to see clearly where the candidates stand on the issues that may decide their vote.
- Answers are not edited in any way. We ask candidates to limit their answers to three minutes and then we stand back until they’re finished. What you see online is word for word what the candidates told us.
