With U.S. Presidential Elections quickly approaching (November 8), the candidates have one last chance in the election cycle to win the votes of undecided voters of the Presidential Election Debates.

Since the 1960’s, presidential debates have become extremely important to the democratic process of the U.S. presidential elections. The topics discussed in Presidential debates are often the most controversial issues of the time, and some elections have been nearly decided by these debates. 

On Wednesday, October 19, 2016, the 3rd and final presidential debate of the 2016 General Election will air from 9pm to 10:30 p.m. ET. Thedebate will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics selected by the moderator.

The topics for the final debate of the 2016 election are as follows:

  • Debt and entitlements 
  • Immigration 
  • Economy 
  • Supreme Court 
  • Foreign hot spots
  • Fitness to be president

The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.
