Tips for Debate Viewers

We got an e-mail this morning from the League of Women Voters with some tips to help you get the most out of the debate and make an informed decision. Without further delay, here are The League of Women Voters’ Top Five Tips for Debate Watching:

1. Think Ahead

Before the debate, ask yourself which issues are most important to you, and jot down what you’d like to learn from each of the candidates.

2. Are They Answering the Question?

Pay attention to how the candidates answer the questions. Are they specific? Sincere? Knowledgeable?

3. Keep Track of Topics

Are the candidates being asked about your priority issues? Are the questions fair and pertinent?

4. Talk it out!

Afterwards, talk about the debate with your friends family. Did the debate sway your decision? Did you learn something new about the candidates’ positions?

5. Vote on November 4th.

It is your best opportunity to make your voice heard and help shape the issues that affect all of us! Visit to prepare yourself.
