Here are some tips I could give you:

- try to make your questions closed ones because if you have open questions, then it will be difficult later to summarise your data since most of it will be qualitative data
- try to avoid giving any ambiguous questions so that they can provide quick answers
- don't provide questions which seem to favour towards something. eg.Don't you agree that abortion is evil and should be outlawed?
- always ask whether they want to remain anonymous or not. And also tell them that their feedback will be treated with confidentiality.
