HEMPSTEAD - ? The second presidential debate at Hofstra University tonight will be in a town hall style.

The style is different from the past where regular people are asking questions about things that are on their minds.

During the debate tonight, chosen Nassau County residents will ask the candidates questions.

Both President Obama and Mitt Romney will have the chance to walk around the stage and talk to the people.

The questions will cover foreign and domestic issues, and CNN's Candy Crowley will be the moderator. Crowley publicly said she intends to go through and take the debate to areas it has never been taken to.
