The debate tonight is being hosted at Case Western Reserve University after the University of Notre Dame withdrew due to COVID-19 concerns, Cleveland Clinic shared on its debate webpage. Cleveland Clinic is also the Health Security Advisor for the Commission on Presidential Debates this year, which is one reason why it is serving as a co-host for tonight’s debate.

Tickets were very limited due to social distancing and health protocols. Many safety measures are in place tonight, including health screening, disinfectant measures and more. The Health Education Campus’s main building was once temporarily converted into a 1,000-bed surge hospital for COVID-19 and renamed Hope Hospital. It was set up for patients who needed treatment but not high-level hospitalization care.

Tonight’s debate is being hosted in the Health Education Campus’s Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion.

Tonight is the second time Case Western Reserve hosted a debate. It last hosted the vice presidential debate in 2004 between Dick Cheney and John Edwards at the Veale Convocation Recreation and Athletic Center.


What’s Next After Tonight?

After tonight, the vice presidential debate is next on Wednesday, October 7, at the University of Utah.

Then on Thursday, October 15, is the second presidential debate at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.

The third presidential debate is scheduled for Thursday, October 22, at Belmont University.

Each debate will be 90 minutes long without commercial interruption.

Although Trump once said he would agree to debate Biden on Joe Rogan‘s show, this does not appear to be occurring.
