ICYMI, the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will go down at 9 p.m. at Hofstra University. 

Are we pumped? Maybe. Yeah, that's a word you could use. 

No matter where you fall along (or outside) the party lines, 2016 has proved itself to be a seriously f*cking important election year. 

We just want to say, when your children ask you where you were during this election cycle, you shouldn't have to tell them you were re-watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. 

You don't have to go out and join rallies. You don't have to fight your aunt's ex-husband on Facebook. You should just engage in the election process that we have the wonderful right to actually be a part of. #Murica.

Seriously, watch the debate tonight. You don't have a TV, you say? NO ONE HAS A TV. However, nearly every news network is offering up coverage via streaming, so you actually have nooo excuses to not take 90 minutes tonight to be informed about your country.

LifeHacker has kindly provided links to various livestreams. A few of the easiest are on your favorite social networks:

YouTube, via NBC News, Bloomberg Politics, or the Washington Post,

Facebook, via ABC News,  

Or even Twitter, via Bloomberg Politics


If you're an "adult" (TM) with a cable subscription, you can also stream them on your various electronic devices with CNN Go (iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 10, Apple TV, Roku) or Fox "News" (Phone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 10, Apple TV, Roku)

Do you not like any of those options? Well here are more than a dozen others: ABC News, BuzzFeed News, CBS News, CNN Go, CSPAN, Fox "News"Hulu, Huffington Post, NBC News, PBS, Politico, Telemundo, Wall Street Journal, Univision, and Yahoo.


If for some reason (that isn't "I don't have anywhere to watch it!"), you miss the debate tonight, we're sure you can catch up on your college friends' Facebook feeds tomorrow―but do you really want to miss the live-tweeting frenzy that's in store?

Tonight has the potential to be the most watched presidential debate in history. Do you really want to miss this historic event? How will The Donald offend everyone now? Who will Hillary wear? That last one is a (bad) joke.
