Get Involved

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:

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 mail@drcnh.org.

 


Our Process

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 mainstream 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 Disability Unscripted Campaign Event Schedule page for more detailed information about which events our staff attended.
