***Original Text***

At 8 p.m. Oct. 3, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will square off at the University of Denver for the first presidential debate of the election season.

Domestic policy is the topic of the evening. Moderator Jim Lehrer, executive director of PBS News Hour, will oversee six 15-minute segments—the first three segments focusing on the economy and the last three focusing on health care, the role of government and governing.

Throughout the debate, Patch will be moderating a live blog where users can share their thoughts in real time, participate in polls and post photos from debate-watching parties. We’ve also invited state legislators, political candidates, party activists and other movers and shakers across the state to offer their expertise.

To participate, just check back with this page starting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

I am boycotting the debates until they allow more than two parties. In fact they should be inviting all officially registered candidates to the debate.

You make a really good point. There hasn't been a third party since Ross Perot pretty sure.
