How to take part
- Answer a statement by clicking Agree, Disagree or Pass/Unsure. The next statement will automatically appear.
- If you can’t bring yourself to categorically agree or disagree with a statement, the challenge is to write and submit a ‘better’ one!
- To add a statement, fill out the Share your perspective box and click submit.
- Click on Opinion Groups or the Majority Opinion button to explore areas of agreement and difference.
- Come back every few days to vote on new statements, review opinion as it is emerging and to add new statements for others to consider.
- You don’t need to ‘vote’ on all the statements at one time – Pol.is will only present you with statements you haven’t considered.
- More detailed instructions are available here.
- Email email@example.com if you have any concerns or need help.
Statements and moderation

- Statements should not include multiple ideas, but you can submit more than one.
- Statements must be on topic, clear and should not name people, be offensive or be duplicates of other published statements.
- The moderation team will aim to accept or decline submitted statements within 72 hours.
