The non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) on Monday have announced the rules and format for the final televised presidential debate. Each candidate will have their microphones cut off while the other is answering questions.

The CPD stated that "in order to enforce this agreed upon rule, the only candidate whose microphone will be open during these two-minute periods is the candidate who has the floor under the rules."

It was also announced that the 90-minute debate is divided into 15-minute segments into the six topics. Each candidate would be granted two minutes to deliver uninterrupted remarks before proceeding to an open debate for nine minutes of each segment.
