This date and time is of course the first presidential debate that runs from 6 PM to 7:30 PM. I guess no thought was given to that as this will effect turn out among those that take our government seriously.

Event time has been changed to 8pm so as not to coincide with the first Presidential debate. Should be a fantastic evening!
