Why don't you use Server controls.?
 
If you are using htmlcontrols then mark them runat="server"

Using server controls (asp:DropDownList or just html controls with runat="server") you can use these controls in codebehind.
for example:

if you use html controls your 'select' controls in codebehind will have System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlSelect type in codebehind.
If you use .Net 1.1 you should define each control in codebind you want to use
 - System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlSelect in1;

if you use .Net 2+ you should not do it. VS will do it for you and you can use you control without any additional definition.

            IList<string> selectedValues = new List<string>();
            foreach(ListItem item in in1.Items)
            {
                if (item.Selected)
                    selectedValues.Add(item.Value);
            }

If you use server controls (asp:DropDownList) your controls will be type of System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList. That is the only difrence in code behind.

The code could look something like this
protected void submitf(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            IList<string> in1Selected = new List<string>();
            foreach(ListItem item in in1.Items)
            {
                if(item.Selected)
                    in1Selected.Add(item.Value);
            }
 
            IList<string> in2Selected = new List<string>();
            foreach (ListItem item in in2.Items)
            {
                if (item.Selected)
                    in1Selected.Add(item.Value);
            }
 
        }
