Journalists from each of the news outlets will prepare questions for the candidates, who are facing off in the Nov. 8 general election.

The October debate will take place at 2 p.m. at the Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St. Seating will be very limited. It will be livestreamed by CVTV and available on columbian.com.
