Despite being excluded from the Presidential debate stage at Washington University, Green Party Presidential nominee Jill Stein says she will engage in real time with the official debate.
She plans to present her case directly to the American people in a simultaneous broadcast on multiple online and televised platforms.
During the first Presidential debate at Hofstra University, Dr. Stein participated via a livestream.
Since that broadcast, according to Dr. Stein, polls have been released showing that 76% of Americans want open Presidential debates, and 57% want a major-party alternative to the Democratic and Republican parties.
On October 9th (Sunday, 9:00-11:30pm ET), Dr. Stein will provide real-time responses to the debate questions alongside Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton from a studio near Washington University. Her responses will be inserted into the ongoing live feed of the official debate.
This democratized version of the Presidential debate will be livestreamed on Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka’s official social media accounts via Periscope and Facebook Live, with a televised simulcast carried by Democracy Now! on Free Speech TV and Link TV as part of their “Expanding the Debate” special.
Online viewers can also read, watch and share individual responses that will be posted on Dr. Stein’s Twitter stream.
The second presidential debate will happen Sunday, October 9. The U.S. presidential election is scheduled to take place Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
