How Do I Get 2020 Debate Tickets?

2020 Debate Tickets

Many people are searching for debate tickets to attend a 2020 Democratic Primary debate or a 2020 Presidential Debate.

How can I get tickets?

There is no guarantee to get tickets to a primary or presidential debate. Usually, for a primary debate, the ticketing is controlled by the party, such as the Democratic National Committee (DNC) or the Republican National Committee (RNC), and available tickets are extremely limited.

For a General Election Presidential debate, tickets are usually controlled by the university which is hosting the debate and a small pool of tickets is usually available to the faculty and student body, very few public tickets are made available, if at all. Here is a breakdown for the upcoming debates and who to contact to try and buy debate tickets:
