President Obama isn't on the ballot Tuesday, but you wouldn't know it from watching this year's congressional and gubernatorial debates.

The Huffington Post pored through debate transcripts from this election cycle, a list of which follows below, and found over 500 mentions of "Obama." This does not include references to "Obamacare," the "president" or any other allusion to the commander-in-chief.

Take a look at the video above for a sampling of the presidential name-drops.
