The first debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump takes place at 9 p.m. tonight and if you have a TV, computer, smartphone, or tablet, you have no excuse to miss it.

The debate will be broadcast live on all four major networks and WXXI – local over-the-air channels 8.1, 10.1, 13.1, and 31.1 for the networks, and 21.1 for WXXI – and news organizations are streaming it live on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, too.

The debate will last 90 minutes, and the moderator is NBC news anchor Lester Holt. It’ll be held at Hofstra University on Long Island; the presidential debate commissions say that Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson aren’t polling high enough to participate.

Metro Justice and the Alliance for Quality Education will hold a walk from the Liberty Pole downtown to the governor’s regional office. The groups will deliver a bill to the office for what they say is for an overdue increase in funding for high-needs school districts. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit.

The walk starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 30. BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
