We could probably accomplish that by extracting questions and answers
from the voting application functionality that Nigel wants to put in
place and repackaging them in whatever formats make sense as part of a
get out the vote effort.  We drive votes to the voting app to ask
questions, we drive candidates to the voting app to answer questions,
then we cull and re-broadcast via other mediums.

If we do it that way, I'm going to be a sneaky bastard and delibrately
pre-seed the audience with people to make sure there are at least a
few questions to ask.  Or make sure the moderator has some to ask.  My
fear is, a town hall, would be filled with crickets instead of
questions for the candidates.
