Tonight, November 20th at 8pm, we kick off the fifth(!) democratic debate in Atlanta, Georgia. Here’s everything you need to know:
Who’s in it?
The 10 candidates who made the cut are: former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, California Sen. Kamala Harris, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, billionaire and climate advocate Tom Steyer, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.
Former Housing Secretary Julián Castro failed to qualify for this debate and former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke ended his White House bid.
How did they qualify for this debate?
In order to qualify for the debate, candidates could either reach 3 percent in four national or early-state, DNC-approved polls, or reach 5 percent in two early-state polls. They also had to demonstrate that they have 165,000 unique donors, including at least 600 each in at least 20 states, U.S. territories or the District of Columbia. This criteria is set by The Democratic National Committee.

One last thing – vote for your favorite candidates!
A lot has changed since the last debate – some candidates have joined the race and some have dropped out, maybe you were on the fence about which candidate was your favorite, maybe you’ve changed your mind completely about who you’re supporting. While we’re not going to endorse anyone, we want to know who your favorites are before the candidates take the stage tonight! Take our survey and then tune into the debate with us at 8pm.
