FINALLY! The debates are right around the corner! This is when we all finally get to see what the candidates have to say, and without the flowery graphics or ominous voice overs. There will be three presidential debates, but only one vice presidential debate. It seems like it is in our best interest to watch these things and become as informed as possible before we cast our votes. These historic times are screaming for informed voters!
