Ahead of the 2024 election, three debates for president and one for vice president are planned

The proposed schedule includes three presidential debates, beginning with the first on Sept. 16 at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

The second debate is scheduled for Oct. 1 at Virginia State University in Petersburg, Virginia, and the third on Oct. 9 at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

Notably, the debate at Virginia State University would mark the first time a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) hosts a presidential debate.

Additionally, the vice presidential candidates are set to debate on Sept. 25 at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, as per a report by Raw Story on November 21.

While the Democratic nominee is anticipated to be President Joe Biden, the Republican field is led by former President Donald Trump, who, as of Monday, has not committed to participating in any of the Republican primary debates.

Trump has often opted for rallies instead of attending primary debates. It remains to be seen which candidates will officially commit to participating in the proposed debates, which have been a longstanding tradition since 1976, providing a platform for candidates to discuss key issues in a globally watched, fair, and neutral setting.
