The debate is sponsored by the Saint Anselm College Republicans, and hosted by the New Hampshire Insitute of Politics and Political Library.

As of 12/10 at 9:30 p.m., all confirmed attendees have been sent an email with further instructions to attend this debate. We were unable to accommodate all requests due to very high interest.

No additional tickets are available at this time through the college.

Campaign Visibility Area Guidelines

The intent of the Campaign Visibility Area (CVA) is to provide campaigns and other groups with a designated area to express their free speech rights. It is important to remember, however, that while we want to allow this opportunity, safety is our number one concern. Many, if not all, of the rules outlined below are designed to ensure safety of all CVA participants along with the debate attendees. It should also be noted that Saint Anselm College, is private property, located within a residential area of Goffstown and Manchester and we ask all CVA participants to be respectful of the local community.
