The Register news team will be developing a series of questions for each debate, but readers also are encouraged to post their suggested questions in the comment section below this blog entry for possible inclusion. Readers are encouraged to click on at sanduskyregister.com while the debates are live and ask their own questions of the candidates.
Each debate will be shown at sanduskyregister.com live while it happens and be made available later for demand viewing at the news website.
The debates will be an hour-long Q&A timed format unless otherwise noted and will include questions from the audience in the interactive chatroom.
