Debate BINGO! Get your card here
This is going to be EPIC!
Monday, September 26th at 9pm ET / 6pm PT is the first Presidential debate of the 2016 election! To keep debate watching fun, we've created a debate BINGO card to help you track whether the candidates are covering issues of greatest concern to women, moms, and families.
** Gather your troops (your troops can be just your cat, or your child, or your neighbor without a TV) and have a virtual party with us & your TV on Mondaynight.

The BINGO card is a great, fun way to track if the presidential candidates talk about the issues that are important to women, moms, dads, kids, and families. Issues like fair pay, access to healthcare, sick days, child care and other family economic security policies.
Here's how it works: Every time a candidate talks about one of those issues, you can mark it down on the BINGO card--and maybe even raise a juice box or sippy cup in a cheer!

The fun doesn't stop after the debates! After the debates are over, we'll also share the Presidential debate BINGO card tallies for each candidate with the media, as well as with the campaigns. This way the candidates will know that real people are paying attention to--and tallying!--where they stand on family economic security issues. And thus, playing something as fun as BINGO will help remind the candidates to put family economic security issues as a top priority.
We'll also be tracking the BINGO tallies on social media using the hashtag #MomsVote. We hope you'll join us in tracking and discussing the debate on this thread.
So, get your presidential BINGO party on! You can even use it as a fun "teachable" moment with your kids about the importance of citizen participation in elections.
For our part, we can't wait to sit down and tally up their remarks, or lack thereof, on our presidential BINGO cards -- and to keep letting candidates know that moms are paying attention, and that our votes matter.
