The 2020 Presidential Election is happening already, with over 40 million Americans having voted already. And Thursday night brings the final debate of the 2020 cycle, as Joe Biden and Donald Trump will share the stage in Nashville at Belmont University with the event getting started at 9 p.m. ET.

Kristen Welker of NBC News will moderate the debate and it will be airing on multiple networks, including Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS and on cable channels like CNN (which will not require a login on CNN.com), MSNBC, CSPAN. It will be available via live stream on YouTube and is available to stream on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku. An audio version of the debate will also be broadcast on National Public Radio.

Last week the Commission on Presidential Debates released the list of topics for the first debate. The format for the first debate calls for six 15-minute time segments dedicated to the following topics:

Fighting COVID-19
American Families
Race in America
Climate Change
National Security
Leadership

The debate will run for 90 minutes, and topics might not be discussed in this order. One difference between this debate and previous ones is each candidate will have their microphone muted during the two minutes their opponent is answering an original question.

DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a free-to-play pool to follow along during the debate. There are eight questions to answer, and the persons who get the most correct will split part of a $50,000 prize pool.
