Hofstra Debate Countdown Clock Has Wrong Time

3

I considered posting this in the live blog, but I think this note is worth its own post simply simply to prevent some folks from missing the debate.

The debate is scheduled to begin at 9pm eastern (8pm central time). I live in the central time zone. When I go to Hofstra’s debate website, the countdown clock has the wrong time (see screen shot below). Apparently, whoever set up the website didn’t account for anyone living outside the eastern time zone to rely on it. Anyway, spread the word in case some may be confused.

For me, the countdown clock should read 1 hour, not 2…
