Since I have become an adult and began immersing myself in politics, I have heard many comments from people who do not have opinions or simply choose not to vote because of their lack of knowledge in political candidates and topics. Thankfully due to our technologically advanced world, we are able to watch televised debates to better shape our opinions, educate Americans to prepare for elections and proudly cease excuses of political ignorance.
Presidential debates are a storied and revered event during any campaign season, and whether we are in the middle of a pandemic or not, candidates should never avoid them, and we should never avoid watching them. Photo by C. Allin Means
