A protest over the exclusion of third-party candidates from presidential debates took place between 4 and 6 p.m. Monday in York’s Continental Square, according to a news release from the York County Green Party.

The release states that two presidential candidates, Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, will be on enough state ballots this November to win the presidency through the Electoral College, but have been excluded by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

Think they should be included? Post a comment or take our poll. Or both
