Do you want to ask a candidate a disability-related question but don’t know where to start?
You are welcome to use our questions:
With one in five Americans, including nineteen percent of likely voters, experiencing a disability…
- What efforts are you making to reach out and employ those with disabilities in your campaign?
- What efforts will you make to employ those with disabilities in your administration?
- What efforts are you taking to ensure that your campaign events are accessible to people with disabilities?
Or focus on an issue that is of importance to you and your family:
- Assistive Technology
- Special Education
- Housing discrimination
- Medicaid and Healthcare
- Mental Health
- Voting Rights
Provide a short fact or statistic about the issue and then follow it with a short, specific question.
Have you asked a candidate a disability-related question? Let us know how it went at email@example.com.
In an effort to inform individuals with disabilities on issues pertinent to their lives, we are asking as many candidates as possible about issues that are important to people with disabilities. Videos appearing here are the candidates’ unedited responses to our questions.
Although we would like to question every candidate (and potential candidate) who visits the Granite State, given our staff and resources, we are focusing on candidates who hold smaller campaign events in and around the Concord area. We are using the NECN Campaign Tracker and personal contacts to keep up to date with campaign stops.
Check out our Campaign Event Schedule page for more detailed information about which events our staff attended.
