The 10-person lineup means that the Sept. 12 debate will take place on a single night from 8 to 11 p.m., unlike the previous two rounds of debates, which were split between two nights due to the large number of candidates that qualified.
The candidates in the third debate will have more time on stage than in previous debates — three hours as opposed to two hours, ABC News announced.
To make the cut for the third debate, candidates had to amass the support of at least 130,000 unique donors and register 2 percent in four DNC-approved polls. The deadline to meet those requirements was Wednesday.
Eleven candidates ultimately failed to qualify for the September event, including Sen. Kirsten GillibrandKirsten GillibrandWarren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Warren, Pressley introduce bill to make it a crime for police officers to deny medical care to people in custody Senate Dems press DOJ over coronavirus safety precautions in juvenile detention centers MORE (D-N.Y.), who dropped out of the race on Wednesday after it became clear that she would not meet the participation requirements.
ABC is set to announce the podium order for the candidates later on Thursday.
