The second Presidential Debate, due to take place last week in Miami, was canceled after proposals were rejected for the event to be hosted virtually, in light of Donald Trump's positive coronavirus test. Instead, the candidates took part in separate town hall meetings. However, the candidates are ready to take to their podiums again on Thursday October 22 (morning of October 23 in the UK and Europe) to take part in the last debate, less than 2 weeks before America goes to the polls on November 3.

The Commission for Presidential Debates has confirmed that each candidate will be able to respond to a question for 2 minutes without interruption, with the other candidate's microphone to be muted during those 2 minutes.


9pm until 10:30pm EST. This means the event begins in the UK at 2am BST on Friday October 23, and in Europe at 3am CEST.


Belmont University, in Nashville, Tennessee.


Both candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, will take part, moderated by Kristen Welker of NBC News.
