Voters have an opportunity to pose questions to candidates for governor, U.S. Senate and key Congressional races in Ohio, then vote on all the citizen questions to help select the ones that should be answered by the candidates.
The 10Questions program is being used in 11 states, where participants have posed more than 700 questions to candidates in 46 races. Newspapers, among them the Akron Beacon Journal, Miami Herald and Phildelphia Inquirer, are helping with the effort by providing links and encouraging participation.
This Miami Herald video is informative.
The deadline is midnight Monday Sept. 20.
