Tonight is the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, taking place in Colorado.

Mission Local will have reporters at two debate-watch parties — one hosted by the Good Ol’ Girls, the Bay Area’s premier network of progressive women, and one by the San Francisco Young Republicans. We’ll be reporting on the reactions and thoughts of the people at the watch parties, but we also want to know your opinions and comments on tonight’s first presidential debate. We’ll compile your Facebook posts and tweets on our website, but only if you include the hashtag #election2012.

Tune in to missionlocal.org tonight during the debate to see what people in San Francisco have to say about the event.

Watch. Tweet. Discuss. Be informed.
