Hofstra University is very pleased to host the third and final presidential debate of the 2008 presidential campaign on October 15. The debate itself is produced and sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that controls all aspects of debate production.
Ticket availability for the debate itself will be extremely limited. In debates produced by the CPD in prior presidential elections, at most a few hundred tickets were made available to the host university in the days immediately prior to the debate. The campaigns control a significant portion of the tickets.
Virtually all of tickets allocated to Hofstra University from the Commission on Presidential Debates will be distributed to current students in the days before the debate, as recommended by the CPD and consistent with past practices of debate hosts.
Tickets will not be available through the CPD or Hofstra University personnel and tickets are not available through any other means at this point in time.
