Everything you need to know about tonight's (and tomorrow's) GOP town hall

How will it work?

The town halls tonight and tomorrow will be different from the debates we've gotten used to. Instead of appearing on stage all at once and responding to one another's answers, the candidates will each be given their own chance to answer questions from voters and Anderson Cooper, who is moderated the town hall, one at a time. 


When can I watch it?

The town hall will air on CNN at 8 p.m. ET tonight, Feb. 17, and tomorrow, Feb. 18.


Who will participate?

All of the current Republican presidential candidates. Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio will participate tonight while Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and Donald Trump will participate the following evening. 


What's the big deal?

The South Carolina Republican primary is only three days away, and this is the last chance voters in the Palmetto State will get to hear the candidates speak on the issues before they head to the precincts. South Carolina is just the third primary in the nation.
