HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - The second Presidential Debate, moderated by CNN's Chief Political Correspondent, Candy Crowley, will take place Tuesday night at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
The debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. Candidates each will have two minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion.
The town meeting participants will be undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization.
For the students that get to experience this event, it's a once-in-a-lifetime feeling.
"It's so crazy that it's at our school, Hofstra, there's so many people here so many news teams and the president's actually coming to our school. And it's just crazy because I live right there, across the street on campus, and he's gonna be coming through himself," said Melissa Siegel, a graduate student at Hofstra University.
Plenty of curious onlookers, protestors, and even former candidates showed up for the debate.
"I wanted to show my supporters some support. I can go in the place because I didn't get the credentials to go in, but I don't have to be in it. They're not saying anything anyway. I don't like Mitt Romney and I don't like Barack Obama, but I've gotta vote for one of them so I'm gonna walk to the poll with my eyes closed and crack it in the end and vote for Barack Obama," said Jimmy McMillan, a Rent is Too Damn High Party candidate from last election.
