Each election, The Daily News asks candidates in contested races to answer a series of questions submitted by the newspaper’s staff and readers.

The following questionnaires were compiled largely from points that readers requested us to ask on their behalf. The profiles below are from those who participated. The questions vary from race to race. We adopted this procedure at the suggestion of readers.

Candidates were given a series of questions and were limited to 110 words on their answers.

Early voting in the election began Monday, April 29.
