To help make sense of the coming election – with voting now less than a month away – Cambridge Community Television has been collecting candidate profiles and videotaping and streaming candidate forums. It plans to cover at least three of the upcoming forums for City Council and School Committee candidates, as well as providing live Election Night coverage from 7 to 10 p.m. Nov. 7.

Reporters will also be outside polling stations all Election Day for exit interviews, said Susan Fleischmann, executive director of Cambridge Community Television.

Upcoming events before then include:
