What you need to know

An independent polling organisation chooses a selection of questions to be asked.

You’ll need to provide your:

  • name
  • email address
  • contact number

If your question is chosen

The Cabinet Office will contact you within 3 days of submitting your question.

You’ll need to record a video of yourself asking your question to be shown during the public event.

Footage of the event will be available online afterwards. It may also be used by news services or websites.

If your question is not chosen

If the Cabinet Office does not contact you within 3 days, your question will not be used. The Cabinet Office might contact you later to ask for your permission to use your question elsewhere.
