On Tuesday night, Indiana Governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence will engage in a debate against his Democratic counterpart, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine. The two will face-off in a live debate, moderated by CBS News's Elaine Quijano, from a stage at Virginia's Longwood University.

Like last week's presidential debate between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the debate between the two vice presidential candidates will begin at 9 p.m. Eastern and go until 10:30 p.m. Eastern.

According to USPresidentialElectionNews.com, the event will be divided up into nine segments, each about ten minutes long. Quijano will pose opening questions and each VP candidate will get a chance to answer and respond to their competitor's answers.

Both Pence and Kaine are preparing for Tuesday's debate, according to ABC News, with Pence reportedly prepping with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Unlike the presidential debates, the topics for this upcoming debate won't be released beforehand.
