Debate input – Online forums expected

The nonprofit group that sponsors and produces the presidential debates has set up a Web site where citizens can suggest topics for the candidates to discuss.

The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates has added a questionnaire to its site designed to identify issues Americans would like to see debated in the presidential and vice-presidential debates in October. The final selection of questions will be left up to the moderator, who will be given the suggestions from the web site.

The survey will also be available through the web sites of the commission’s partners, including the AARP, the American Federation of Teachers, and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

The project will also include post-debate surveys and chats, an informal weekly election poll and a video library of issue and candidate information discussed during the debates.

The commission also expects to announce a series of online, moderated election forums in September.
