President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden will have their microphones cut off in Thursday’s debate while their rival delivers their opening two-minute answer to each of the debate topics.
Do you agree with the commission's decision to mute mics in the next debate? Voting has closed for this poll — here are the results:
- 71% - 704 votes - voted yes
- 29% - 281 votes - voted no
Watch for another poll this Wednesday afternoon that we will follow and review starting at News5 at 4 p.m.
The 90-minute debate is divided into six 15-minute segments, with each candidate granted two minutes to deliver uninterrupted remarks before proceeding to an open debate.
The open discussion portion of the debate will not feature a mute button, but interruptions by either candidate will count toward their time in the second and final debate Thursday.
