The first Presidential Debate of 2012 takes place tonight at the University Denver, Colorado. The debate will take place 6PM-7:30PM Pacific time and the moderator will be Jim Lehrer (Host of NewsHour on PBS). The debate will focus on domestic policy and be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on topics to be selected by the moderator and announced several weeks before the debate.
The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a discussion of the topic.

The election season’s first presidential debate airs on October 3 at 6 p.m., so we’re opening our building for communal debate-watching before our 7:30 p.m. event.
Politics really is more fun with company—and food and drink—especially when it’s a deal: Get here by 6.30 p.m., and admission is free to the debate-viewing party, followed by our previously scheduled event with activist/economist Gar Alperovitz, who offers what Noam Chomsky calls “concrete and feasible” solutions for what ails America. Presented as part of the Town Hall Civics series, supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
