Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton go head to head in classic games such as “Time to Act!”, “Five Favorites”, and “I Can Do This!”

The 2016 United States presidential election debates are a series of debates being held for the 2016 U.S. presidential general election. TheCommission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a bipartisan organization formed in 1987, organizes debates among the major presidential candidates. The first presidential debate for the 2016 election took place on September 26, 2016 and set the record as the most-watched debate in American history, with 84 million viewers. The only vice-presidential debate was held October 4. Two further presidential debates are planned for October 2016. All debates are to take place between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. EDT (6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. PDT).

The CPD set three criteria for eligibility: constitutional eligibility to become president; appearance on enough ballots to potentially reach 270electoral votes; and a polling average at least 15% in five selected national polls. Four candidates achieved the first two criteria: Democraticnominee Hillary Clinton, Republican nominee Donald Trump, Green nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. Only Clinton and Trump also satisfy the third criterion of averaging at least 15% in five selected national polls, and thus were the only two to appear in the first of three debates.

The CPD debates take place at venues at university campuses around the United States. Moderators for the CPD debates were announced on September 2, 2016. Lester Holt was appointed moderator for the first debate. Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper are set to co-moderate the second debate, and Chris Wallace to moderate the third. Elaine Quijano moderated the vice-presidential debate.
