Are you excited about this year's election? There seems to be more of a buzz around the 2016 presidential election than in years past. The big day is almost here as the presidential election will be held on Tuesday, November 8.
Before Americans cast their ballots, they have the chance to compare candidates when they exchange ideas during three debates. This year, you have the chance to get involved with the debates as social media will play a large role.
The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) recently announced that Facebook and Google will help moderators come up with debate questions. They will let the moderators know what people are searching for and saying about the candidates and issues before the debates.
Facebook will also source questions from its users for the town hall debate scheduled for October 9. The moderators will then decide which of those questions to ask the candidates. The CPD says the goal is to "engage the American public in substantive conversations before, during and after the debates."
