POSITION ON ISSUES

The LFDA Survey is the primary source for issue positions on this website. Each election season the Live Free or Die Alliance sends a survey on NH issues to every candidate for state office. 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.
