If you are looking for answers to these questions for House or Senate Democratic candidates appearing on your ballot paper, but your state or district isn't listed, it means that we've either not received an answer or we've not reached out to the candidates yet. We have a small group of volunteers assisting with contacting candidates but not enough people to reach all the House and Senate races like we'd like to! If you'd like to help us get answers from candidates please contact us on [email protected] to lend a hand. It's super easy and a great exercise in democracy!
