Now that the voting chaos at the Iowa caucuses is finally dying down, all eyes are turning to the next big political primary in New Hampshire, and Apple News is letting users get in on the action.

Apple News added a new feature to its election hub this week that allows users to submit questions for the New Hampshire Democratic primary debates. Questions are submitted via email to ABC’s moderators who might pick them to read on air.

“Have a question you’d like to ask the candidates at the Democratic debate in New Hampshire on Friday? Submit it to the ABC News moderators here.” says the header at the top of the 2020 Election hub.

ABC and Apple News will co-host the debate at St. Anselm College on February 7, in Manchester, N.H. The debate will be moderated by ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, ABC News managing editor David Muir and ABC News correspondent Linsey Davis. A live stream of the debate will be offered on ABC as well as through the Apple TV app, Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

So far only seven candidates have qualified for the New Hampshire debates. The list includes Joe Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
