I have tried to contact the CPD in so many ways it's a little ridiculous that the phone number listed goes unanswered. Messages are not returned. No emails, and when trying to contact the members of the boards, there is no contact information available. I cannot understand how or why it is possible that such an important organization having to deal with the Presidential Debates and the outcome of who can and cannot participate is seemingly unreachable via email, telephone, and every social network known to man. I'm at the point where I'm sending hand written cards to 2 different addresses (certain to become more than that) as a means of having the most simple question answered. I am just an average American voter who's voice is literally silenced by the unnecessary seclusion of contact information.

The Commission is an unwelcoming organization, solely devoted to perpetuating a non-inclusive dialogue about the state of political affairs. They do not disclose all information used in their selection process, and seem to think that their criteria, is more important then the constitution and federal agencies. They are a complete sham.

The Commission on Presidential Debates was created in 1987 by both Republicans and Democrats to manage the televised presidential debates and to purposely exclude third party presidential candidates in order to limit our options when picking the next leader of our country. It is a sham that perpetuates a presidential party duopoly!
