Presidential debate organizers have finalized the four schools where the 2016 debates will take place.
The Democratic and Republican presidential candidates will meet three times in the 2016 general election, announced the non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates Wednesday. The vice presidential candidates will debate once.
Here are the debate sites for the 2016 general election:
- First Presidential Debate: Sept. 26 @ Wright State University in Dayton, OH.
- Second Presidential Debate: Oct. 9 @ Washington University in St. Louis, MO.
- Third Presidential Debate: Oct. 19 @ University of Nevada, Las Vegas
- Vice Presidential Debate: Oct. 4 @ Longwood University in Farmville, VA.
Washington University has already hosted hosted presidential debates in 1992, 2000 and 2004 as well as a 2008 vice presidential debate.
The commission said that Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, will serve as the backup site, while Dominican University of California will helm the debates efforts to incorporate social media in the 2016 presidential debates.
