Want to Ask a Presidential Debate Question?

Patch is gathering reader questions for the candidates' televised, Oct. 16 town-hall-style debate. Submit yours in the comments section.

If last Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with more questions than answers, here’s your chance to get the candidates to address the issues that most matter to you.

The next presidential debate will be a town hall meeting format at Hofstra University in Long Island, where voters will ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy. Patch readers can participate by submitting questions for the candidates.

All you have to do is post your question in the comments section below and we’ll send it to the Commission on Presidential Debates. The Commission is partnering with Patch parent company AOL, along with Google and Yahoo!, to take questions from web users across the country.

Governor Romney, When I look at your eyes, I see someone who would say anything to get my vote. Tell me specifically what loopholes you would get rid of to help the American people who are paying for the current economic conditions that was caused by banks, companies like Enron and dishonest people like Bernie Madoff. If you cannot be specific and you spin your words, you have just lost my vote and I am to you just part of that 47% that you do not care about.

Both of this years presidential candidates have/had a family member who suffers/suffered with MS (multiple sclerosis). How will each candidate fight MS and offer support for the victims and their families?

I am David from Florida. To Mr Romney: I want to know how the Voucher program for medicare would work. How will I know that I won't be short changed? In other plain words, will I get a certain amount on the voucher and it my premium cost more, I will have to make up the difference? To President Obama: What is wrong with a voucher program for medicare?

Mr. Romney. You stated that your blind trust had invested money in the Iranian Weapons Program without your knowledge. Bain Capital also began business with large cash investments from offshore accounts connected to Salvadoran elitists. These elitists were financing the death squads responsible for the deaths of approximately 35,000 Salvadoran citizens. Bain Capital responded only that the investors had passed background checks. When you are so ignorant to the end results of your own financial affairs, how can you claim you would make a fiscally responsible President?
