The third and final presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney is Monday, Oct. 22, at 6 p.m. PDT. Here's the details and schedule, plus where to watch online.

Things are heating up now that the presidential election is just over two weeks away. Monday, Oct. 22 is the deadline to register to vote and also the final debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The topic is foreign policy.

Nearly 66 million people tuned in on Oct. 16 to watch the second presidential debate, a town hall-style battle that proved to be the feistiest yet.

Some voters have suggested that the aggressive bickering between the candidates is offputting rather than informative. The final debate is the last opportunity to see Obama and Romney face off before voters make a decision on Nov. 6.
