Petition for Rulemaking on Candidate Debates

On November 14, 2014, the Commission published a Notice of Availability seeking public comments on a Petition for Rulemaking from Level the Playing Field. The petition requests that the agency amend its regulations on candidate debates to revise the criteria governing the inclusion of candidates in presidential and vice presidential debates. See 11 CFR 110.13(c). Specifically, Level the Playing Field has asked the Commission to prevent debate staging organizations from using polling thresholds to decide which candidates may participate. Public comments on this petition are due by December 15, 2014.
