The Remaining Schedule of Presidential Debates

From the Commission on Presidential Debates:

Second presidential debate (October 16, 2012, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY)Moderator: Candy Crowley, CNN
Hoefstra University – Hempstead, NY

The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. Candidates each will have two minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion. The town meeting participants will be undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization.

Third presidential debate (October 22, 2012 Lynn University, Boca Raton, FL)

Moderator: Bob Schieffer, CBS
Lynn University – Boca Raton, FL

The format for the debate will be identical to the first presidential debate and will focus on foreign policy. The debate will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on topics to be selected by the moderator and announced several weeks before the debate. The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a discussion of the topic.
