Presidential debate schedule

Since I've been getting a lot of traffic recently from people Googling "general election debate schedule" or something similar who are finding my post on the *Clean Elections* general election debate schedule, here is what those people are likely looking for - the schedule of debates for the Presidential election.

First presidential debate

Friday, September 26

The University of Mississippi, Oxford, Miss.

Jim Lehrer Executive Editor and Anchor, The NewsHour, PBS

Vice presidential debate

Second presidential debate (town meeting)

Third presidential debate

Wednesday, October 15

Each debate will begin at 9:00 p.m. EST.

While each debate will be moderated by someone from an MSM organization, the debates will be broadcast on multiple cable and broadcast networks. I recommend C-SPAN.

According to the Navy, daylight saving time doesn't end until November 2 this year, so all of the debates should begin at 6:00 p.m. AZ time, though you should check your local listings to be sure.
