They key though, for asking questions, is for someone to pull them together
and pose them to the candidates as one email, so they don't have to muck
around following and answering fifteen different threads. If the returning
officer wants this to happen, I'd be happy to do the legwork (best if there
is some oversight/collaboration with returning officer and some others).
