Liveblogging the final presidential debate of 2016 from the great Pacific Northwest

Good evening, and wel­come to NPI’s live cov­er­age of the final pres­i­den­tial debate of 2016. NPI staff will be watch­ing and shar­ing impres­sions of the debate between Demo­c­ra­t­ic nom­i­nee Hillary Clin­ton and Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump as it pro­gress­es. The debate, spon­sored by the Com­mis­sion on Pres­i­den­tial Debates, is being broad­cast on all major net­works as well as Face­book and Twitter.

We rec­om­mend C‑SPAN if you’re livestream­ing the debate as opposed to watch­ing it on a cable or broad­cast tele­vi­sion network.

The Uni­ver­si­ty of Neva­da-Las Vegas is host­ing the debate, which will be mod­er­at­ed by Fox’s Chris Wal­lace. The for­mat is as follows:

The debate will be divid­ed into six time seg­ments of approx­i­mate­ly 15 min­utes each on major top­ics to be select­ed by the mod­er­a­tor and announced at least one week before the debate. 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.

Our live cov­er­age begins below.
