Some changes were recently made to the debate formatting. To prevent what happened at the first debate, each candidate will have two guaranteed minutes of speaking time at the beginning of each 15 minute segment. To ensure that those two minutes go uninterrupted, the candidate not speaking will have their microphone turned off. After they both have their two minutes the rest of the segment will be filled with open discussion.

The moderator for this debate is Kristen Welker. She is a White House correspondent for NBC News and co-anchor of “Weekend Today.”

Where can you watch the debate: The debate is available to stream across on Youtube, Hulu, and a variety of news outlets’ websites. It is also available to watch on CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, PBS, NBC, MSNBC, and other television networks.
