Tell Us is not a certified voting system or ballot box. As with any public comment process, participation in Tell Us is voluntary. The responses in this record are not necessarily representative of the whole population, nor do they reflect the opinions of any government agency or elected officials.

Your answers will NOT be saved

This is the form that was used to collect responses. It's here so you can try it and see how it worked when the topic was open.

The topic is now closed, and anything you enter into this form will not be saved.

Sign in and be yourself

Sign in and let others know who you are and what you think. You can sign in now or after you submit your response. You'll be able to read your response on this website and change it if you change your mind.

We recommend against this option. Even though your response will be shared with staff, it won’t be shown on this public website so other community members won’t have the opportunity to see it.

Tell Us has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Open Town Hall will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Open Town Hall will just share your response with Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on Tell Us). Registration is free.

Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization has contracted with Open Town Hall to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Open Town Hall enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Open Town Hall uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization guidelines for civility, Open Town Hall uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Open Town Hall will get your contact information. The company is under contract with Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on Tell Us, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Open Town Hall is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Open Town Hall is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.

OpenGovl is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. Lawrence - Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization has contracted with OpenGov to administer Tell Us.
