The first presidential debate, held in Cleveland on Tuesday, September 29, is in the history books.
Next up is the only vice presidential debate between candidates Michael Pence and Kamala Harris. It's being held at The University of Utah on October 7, 2020 in partnership with the Utah Debate Commission.
Since we can't be in Utah, or together in large numbers here in Ohio, the Ohio Debate Commission (ODC) is again hosting a virtual DebateWatch - a voter education program established by the Commission on Presidential Debates in 1996 and reinvigorated with virtual event options for 2020.
We've designed the DebateWatch to bring people together from all over Ohio for a pre-debate program, after which everyone will watch the debate on their own and then turn it off at the end (before the spin) to come discuss what they saw and heard in our facilitated virtual breakout rooms. The goal is not to say who won or lost, it is to share views with those who may agree and those who don’t. It is to listen respectfully to others’ opinions.
Join us to hear insights from political experts, participate in breakout sessions, and enjoy this first and only vice presidential debate in the virtual company of other Ohioans. Participation in DebateWatch2020 is free and open to all! To register, click here.
