NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — For the first time in a presidential election, registered millennials match the number of baby boomer voters, according to projections from the nonpartisan States of Change project. That means millennials (those born between 1981 and 2000), have about as much power in this election as their parents.

Watch the event live right here on CBSNewYork.com beginning at 11:00 AM.

Now it’s just a matter of exercising that power.

Today’s event comes on the heels of last night’s raucous debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

Clinton and Sanders aggressively challenged each other’s judgment to be president, discussing Wall Street banks, minimum wage, gun control and foreign policy.

“Do we really feel confident about a candidate saying she is going to bring change to America when she is dependent on big money interests? I don’t think so,” Sanders said.

“This is a phony attack that is designed to raise questions when there is no evidence or support,” said Clinton.

Representatives from both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns will debate issues in the race for president.  It will be moderated by Marla Diamond from WCBS 880 and Sonia Rincon of 1010 WINS.  The debate takes place at the Adorama Live Theatre at CBS Radio located at 345 Hudson St., New York, NY 10014.

This event will be followed on Monday with a debate featuring supporters of the GOP.
