What Is Jill Stein Doing During the Presidential Debate?

Jill Stein may not be in tonight’s presidential debate, but she’s still going to make sure her voice is heard. She’s planning online events that coincide with the second presidential debate, so voters can know that they’re not stuck with just two choices.

Here’s what you need to know.

During the first presidential debate, Jill Stein held a rally and press conference on the university grounds where the debate was going to be held. She was escorted off campus by police. Today, she’s planning something a little different.

Stein is hosting a three-way debate livestream on Facebook that will take place at the same time as the presidential debate. So if you don’t want to watch the second presidential debate, you can watch Stein’s livestream instead. You’ll still hear what the candidates are asked and how they respond, but you’ll get to hear Stein’s responses too. Stein’s live stream will start at the same time as the debate, at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. She will post the live stream on her Facebook page here once it’s up. Essentially, the livestream will be edited to allow in Stein’s live answers to the questions, delaying the debate just slightly and making it last a bit longer than it does if you watch it live via a different provider.

After the debate is over, Stein will have a live Facebook Town Hall online, where she’ll answer any other questions that voters have.

Here is Stein’s post about the event.

And here is her post about the Facebook town hall.
