Yes, there is a very important debate happening tonight for a very important election happening in November, but I’d like us all to pause for a second and take a moment to vote in NerdWallet’s So You Think You Can Finance contest. One of our contributors, Jia Tolentino, is in the running, but I am going to be as partisan as possible right now and just tell you to vote for the person you think should win. You can watch a video of each candidate explaining why you should vote for him or her by clicking on their photo. Vote!
