Presidential Debates, Formats Announced: MS, TN and NY get the Presidential Honors

All subject to negotiation and change, of course, by the candidates and their representatives themselves.

Friday, September 26 -- a presidential debate on domestic policy at the University of Mississippi, Oxford (whoops -- a previous version of this post said Biloxi.)

Thursday, October 2 -- a vice presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis

Tuesday, October 7 -- a presidential debate -- town hall meeting format, Belmont University, Nashville, TN

And October 16, a presidential debate about foreign policy at Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY.

And the CPD has kept its ballot access requirements in check: in order to participate, candidates' parties need to be on enough ballots to provide them with a mathematical chance of winning... and must receive 15% or higher in reputable public opinion polls.
