After a fraught election season, Joe Biden is poised to be sworn in as the next president of the United States alongside Kamala Harris as vice president. As the country prepares for a new presidential administration to take over, we want to hear from you.

What are your biggest concerns as President-elect Joe Biden takes office, and what are your hopes?


2020 has been a more eventful year than any of us could have imagined. And it can be hard to even remember all of the events that took place in the news in light of all of the changes we made in our lives: vacations cancelled, schools closed, jobs lost, holidays spent without family.

As part of NHPR’s year-end series, Hindsight, we asked our audience to tell us how their lives have changed due to COVID-19, what they learned, and what their silver linings have been during what has been a tough year for so many of us.

At NHPR, we're continuing to report on the coronavirus pandemic and all of the ways it intersects with our lives.

We always want to hear from our audience and new communities to better our reporting. It is central to our work — it shapes what we report on and how we cover new topics. We continue to welcome your questions about COVID-19.

Please take a few minutes and fill out the survey below to share your questions. If you have more time, tell us how the coronavirus pandemic has changed your life at home, work and school. Let us know how you are doing.

NHPR’s new climate change reporting project, By Degrees, begins in the midst of a global pandemic, mass protests against systemic racism, a presidential transition and an economic crisis. 

The incoming Biden administration has promised to combat climate change, while New Hampshire lags behind its neighbors on similar legislation. In many ways, climate change has taken a backseat as governments deal with the social and economic costs of the coronavirus.

We need your help to tell new stories about how Granite Staters are experiencing climate change at this historic moment. How has climate change affected your life, and how have you responded? In what ways are you observing climate change in New Hampshire? What questions do you have?

The coronavirus pandemic has upended the education system across the country, and in New Hampshire. 

NHPR’s “COVID & the Classroom” tells the stories of how Granite Staters are weighing the necessity of employment and school with the realities of the pandemic. And we want to hear from you.
