About Tonight’s Debate

The debate tonight is being hosted in Nashville at Belmont University’s Curb Event Center. Belmont noted about its participation: “Belmont always seeks to be an engaged member of its community, bringing people together to talk about issues, whether it’s a mayoral, gubernatorial or presidential debate. We consider it a great privilege to host conversations that encourage civil public discourse on subjects that impact all Americans. This is democracy at its best.”

Tickets for the event were limited, as were opportunities to volunteer. Belmont noted: “Due to the impact of the COVID-19 public health crisis, the amount of volunteer opportunities have decreased significantly. All available positions will likely be filled by current students, faculty and staff.”

Biden and Trump will be the only participants, as Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgenson didn’t qualify. The Commission on Presidential Debates explained that qualifications included getting ballot access in enough states for a theoretical electoral college majority, along with achieving 15% in five national public polls “using the average of those organizations’ most recent publicly-reported results.” CPD announced which five polls it would use on August 28, 2020, based on frequency of polling, sample size, methodology, and reputation.

The sponsors for tonight’s debate include HCA Healthcare, Nashville Music City, Ryman Hospitality, and more. There are also supporters listed on Belmont’s webpage, including AARP Tennessee, AT&T, Enterprise Solutions, Gray Line Tennessee, Lithographics, and Stewart.
