MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - HOMTV continues its tradition of excellence with award-winning election programming.

General Election Day is November 3rd and 12 local contested races will be covered as well as four ballot proposals (one Ingham County and threee Meridian Township).
Election programs include candidate interviews, ballot proposal features and live election night coverage. Due to COVID-19 and construction occurring in HOMTV’s Studio and Control Room, this year’s election coverage is being conducted virtually utilizing the Zoom Video Communications Platform.
