POSITION ON ISSUES

The Citizens Count issue surveys are the primary source for issue positions on this website. Each election season Citizens Count sends a survey on policy issues to every candidate for state and federal office in New Hampshire. We make every effort to reach each candidate by snail-mail, e-mail, and phone. If an issue position is still not answered through our survey, we utilize other resources including voting records, candidate websites, campaign fliers, Project Vote Smart surveys, and more. Any questions or suggestions on issue positions? Contact us.
