Thursday night's Democratic presidential debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a swing state, is the party's seventh forum—and the first since Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary in a landslide victory.

The Vermont senator will take the stage with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when the event begins in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Helen Bader Concert Hall at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT. Those wishing to stream the debate, hosted by PBS NewsHour, can go to the show's website. For viewers who prefer to watch it on television, the event will be on their local PBS station.

CNN will simulcast the contest and livestream it on Social media users can follow the action with the hashtag #DemDebate.

The first all-female team at a main Democratic presidential debate, NewsHour's Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff, will moderate. PBS will partner with Facebook to bring viewers data and graphics surrounding the election.

The event will be held ahead of the next two nominating events for the Democrats: the Nevada caucuses on February 20 and the South Carolina primary on February 27. Both states are more diverse than Iowa and New Hampshire, which held the first two nominating events of the election process this month. Wisconsin's primary won't take place until April 5, but the state is significant because it's one of the country's most politically divided.
