LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Nevada arms of the Democratic and Republican parties are pressing for every vote in Clark County around tonight's presidential debate between incumbent President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Republicans with the Trump Victory movement will be phone banking in Henderson beginning at noon, and then host a debate watch party in the evening at Rythm Kitchen in Las Vegas.

Democrats have a slate of events planned beginning with a "swag giveaway" near Paseo Del Prado where Biden supporters can drive through and collect yard signs, stickers and more starting at noon.

Activist Alyssa Milano will lead a Democratic phone bank, Gov. Steve Sisolak plans to host his own debate watch party, and prominent Nevada Democrats will participate in a post-debate spin room.

Watch the debate tonight on KTNV Channel 13 starting at 6 p.m.
