Here are the full details about the debate that you should know. Where, how, or when to watch the Pence vs. Harris debate.
VP Debate 2020: Everything you should know
After the first Presidential debate between President Donald Trump and candidate Joe Biden, it's now time for Vice President's candidates to take the stand.
Two prominent candidates on the position are the current Vice President Mike Pence of the Republican party, versus Senator Kamala Harris of the Democrat party.
The debate is happening at the University of Utah at exactly 9:00 p.m. E.T. / 6:00 p.m. P.T. on Tuesday, Oct. 7. It is expected to be within duration of 90 minutes, with nine 10-minute segments, and no commercial breaks in between.
The students from the University of Utah will be the audiences of the program. However, there is still no given number of how many students will be guests.
Compared to the first Trump vs. Biden debate, the USA Today's Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page will be the debate's moderator. She will be the one choosing the topics that both parties will argue about.
Unfortunately, until now, the chosen topics are still unannounced. But it could involve the same questions with the Presidential debate.
A COVID-19-friendly debate
Another thing that's different from this debate is that the stage will have more serious social distancing guidelines.
Plexiglass barriers will be put up between the two candidates and moderator Susan Page. They will also be sitting 13-feet apart from each other.
These changes were done in relation to the found COVID-19 positive attendees on the recent Presidential debate.
