Submitting a question: To submit a question, we ask that you provide your name, email address, and zip code so we can contact you with relevant information -- including updates on the progress of your question and if your question is chosen for a debate. Your first name and last initial will be visible alongside the questions you submit. Your city (derived from your zip code) will also be displayed next to your question, and if you choose to submit a Twitter handle, it will be mentioned on Twitter when other people tweet about your question.

Under no circumstance will your email address be made public or sold.

Voting on questions: To ensure that people are not voting multiple times for the same question, we ask all voters to supply an email address and a zip code. Your first name and last initial may be listed with the questions you have voted for under "Recent Activity" on the front page of the site.

Email: The Open Debate Coalition -- and affiliated groups such as the Progressive Change Institute and Americans for Tax Reform -- may send you updates by email. You may unsubscribe at any time. For question submissions, we treat your name and city as public information. Cookies may be used.
