LONG ISLAND, N.Y. – The first presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton is tonight at Hofstra University, and we will be there to fact-check what they say.

Here’s how viewers can get the facts when the candidates make false and misleading statements:

  • We will tweet during the debate and include links that provide more information. Follow us on Twitter at @factcheckdotorg.
  • We will post an annotated transcript that highlights statements we fact-checked and provides a short summary of our findings. Visit our website in the morning after the debate for a link to our annotated transcript.
  • We will post a full analysis on our website several hours after the debate. Visit our website in the morning after the debate to read the story.
  • We will produce short videos that highlight individual false and misleading claims made by the candidates. The videos will be posted to our website the day after the debate, as well as on our social media sites. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.

We want to thank the Annenberg Foundation, the Stanton Foundation and the thousands of individual supporters like you for funding for FactCheck.org. The Stanton Foundation provided funding for our enhanced campaign coverage, including our attendance at the national political conventions and the debates, as well as production of the debate videos.
