COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The stage is set for the fourth Democratic Presidential Debate at Otterbein University in the Columbus, Ohio suburb of Westerville.
With 12 candidates taking the stage, it will be the largest televised debate in U.S. history.
Across America, Democrats, Republicans and those who don’t identify with either party will be watching the debate on CNN, or on one of the other ways you can listen to or stream the debate.
KXAN sister station NBC4 decided to do something it’s never done before. Before and during the debate, it’s featuring live, interactive specials. You can watch on Facebook Live, but it won’t be as cool. We’ll be asking you questions — and you can vote by tapping or clicking on the screen, and see the results in real-time during the:
- Pre-debate special at 7:35 p.m. EDT
- Virtual interactive watch party during the debate
A presidential primary debate’s purpose is to broadly share the candidate’s political opinions and public policy proposals. NBC4’s purpose with its interactive specials is for you to share your voice as a voter, and for you to see how other voters align with each candidate.
You can stream the pre-debate special and the live-poll watch party on KXAN’s election page.
