Potential voters now have eight days left to register to vote in the 2008 general election.
The last day to register to vote without having to appear in person at the Election Department Office is Saturday, Oct. 4. For details about registration, as well as early voting, read an earlier Sun story for more information.
Tonight Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama will square off against his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, in a debate hosted by the University of Mississippi. McCain waited until earlier this morning to confirm he would attend the debate, after previously stating he wanted the event postponed so that he could focus on the nation’s economic crisis.
McCain’s wish to postpone the debate drew criticism from both his rival, Obama, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Both stressed that now is the time the public needs to hear from the person who may be the nation’s next president.
The debate will be aired on KLAS Channel 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. After the presidential debate, Jon Ralston will host Commission District A candidates Brian Sgroggins and Steve Sisolak, followed by Commission District C candidates Larry Brown and Valerie Weber on “Face to Face.”
