WASHINGTON, DC (WECT) -

The Commission on Presidential Debates has set the dates, times and locations for the face-to-face meetings of the nominees for President of the United States.

The first 2016 general election debate will be September 26, on the campus of Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, according to a release by the CPD. The nominees will meet again less than two weeks later on October 9, at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. The third debate will take place at the University of Nevada Las Vegas on October 19.

The moderators, formats and topics will be announced at a later date.

The vice-presidential candidates will debate on October 4 at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Hofstra University in New York will be a backup site.

In a release posted on the CPD website, the commission co-chairs Frank Fahrenkopf and Mike McCurry said "We appreciate the many applications we received and are delighted with the sites we have selected.  We look forward to working with these fine universities and their students and communities to bring these important civic events to the nation."

The non-partisan, non-profit Commission on Presidential Debates began in 1987, and has sponsored and produced debates for presidential and vice-presidential candidates in every general election cycle since 1988.
