Tickets for the Nov. 6 Democratic presidential forum at Winthrop University will go on sale online at 9 a.m. Friday.

Tickets, which will cost $25, will be available through the South Carolina Democratic Party website. State Democrats said Saturday that people who want tickets can sign up to receive a link at scdp.org/take-action.

The two-hour forum at Winthrop Coliseum – from 8 to 10 p.m – will include Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and possibly other Democratic candidates.

The coliseum seats around 6,000 people for basketball games, but party officials have not said how many tickets will be available.

The forum will be broadcast live on MSNBC, with news commentator Rachel Maddow as moderator.
