Janet Brown Eligibility Question

Janet Brown is the Executive Director of the Commission on Presidential Debates. Today I emailed her this message:

Ms. Brown,

I believe I've contacted you with this question once before, but I wanted to try one more time just in case my last request fell through the cracks.

What I'm trying to figure out is what evidence the CPD requires its potential participants to provide in order to prove their Constitutional eligibility. I'm particularly interested in understanding how the CPD objectively determines whether or not a candidate is a natural-born citizen of the United States of America.

I would sincerely appreciate your taking the time to answer my question, but also understand that circumstances within or beyond your control may keep you from doing so. Either way, I thank you for your time.
