The 10-candidate debate sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee will begin at 5 p.m. and be televised by CNN. It will be streamed -- without requiring log-in to a cable provider -- on CNN.com, across mobile devices via CNN's apps for iOS and Android, and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Android TV.
Under rules set by the DNC, candidates needed to either register 1% support in three qualified polls or have 65,000 unique donors to their campaign, including a minimum of 200 donors in at least 20 states, to qualify for the debate.
A draw determined whether candidates would debate Tuesday or Wednesday. The draw formula used by CNN guaranteed that two of the top four candidates and five of the top 10 would be on the same stage.
The candidates' positions on the stage at the Fox Theatre in Detroit was determined by public polling numbers, with the top candidates at the center. Former Vice President Joe Biden and California Sen. Kamala Harris will be in the middle Wednesday.
Standing from left to right will be Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet; New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand; former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro; New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker; Biden; Harris; entrepreneur Andrew Yang; Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard; Washington Gov. Jay Inslee; and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Dana Bash, Don Lemon and Jake Tapper will be the moderators.
