By POLITICO staff staffThe issue of tickets for presidential and vice presidential debates continued to flare on Friday as Facebook was forced to suspend tickets for the first two presidential debates scheduled for Sunday.
Facebook said Friday evening that it was taking steps to resolve tickets for those two debates but that it would not disclose when or how the company would resume ticket sales.
“As we are updating the ticketing process, we will continue to share updates as they become available,” a Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement.
“We encourage all users to check their spam filter for spam and scams.
If you have questions, we encourage you to reach out to your ticket reseller.”
In addition to the debate ticket suspensions, Facebook said it is working with the White House on a plan to address tickets for other presidential and VP debate events.
Facebook has had to suspend or suspend some ticket sales for presidential debates and vice-presidential debates as part of its ticketing and other system updates.
Facebook announced the ticket suspension for the presidential debates in February and the ticket suspensions for the vice-presidency debates in July.
The company also had to issue refunds to some people who purchased tickets for vice presidential debate tickets.
