Presidential Debates:
Commission on Presidential Debates

Official site for info on the debates; good source for history, qualifications, process, site selection, members.
Electoral College:
There is a great site for MAPS at:
Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections

Election Night fun:
Two sites that could be of use at election parties are:
An electoral college calculator: http://www.jump.net/~jnhtx/ec/ec.html
Be your own CNN and input winners state by state. Calculations are done by the website showing results on a map and by numerical electoral college vote tallies
The site: http://www.avagara.com/e_c/ec_calc.htm, lets you tally the votes, but does not have the colored map to go along with it.
For a chart of how many electoral college votes will be decided each hour based on time zone and closing time of polls see:
