OLLU to serve as DebateWatch2020 participant

OLLU has been selected by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) to serve as a DebateWatch2020 participant. The Commission, which oversees and organizes U.S. Presidential debates, has chosen, so far, only five universities from Texas to participate.

Participants will be recognized on the CPD’s website and listed in DebateWatch materials that will be distributed nationally and internationally.

The Law and Politics Society (LPS) will host debate watch parties on Oct. 7 for the vice presidential debate, and Oct. 15 and Oct. 22 for the last two presidential debates.

Due to social distancing, up to 24 people can join the watch party in Providence West Social Room, from 7:30-10:30 p.m. OLLU will provide a WebEx link to join virtually. Those who attend are encouraged to bring a pen and paper to take notes and write questions. After the debate, there will be a discussion of the issues that were debated.

An important reminder: The last day to register to vote is Oct. 5. Early voting will be held Oct. 13-30. OLLU is an early voting site. Election Day is Nov. 3.
