Both televised events, filmed before a live audience, provide a space for the candidates to address issues important to the Latino community, including the economy, education and immigration.

"Hispanics will play a key role in electing the next president of the United States and these events will help address key issues so that the more than 20 million Hispanics expected to vote this year can make an informed decision," Cesar Conde, president of Univision Networks said in a statement.

The candidates agreed to the events after Ramos criticized the Commission on Presidential Debates for not choosing a Latino journalist to moderate one of the three debates.
