Online Independent Voter Survey Yields First Results in CA's 52nd Congressional District

by Kymberly Bays, published

The results are in for the IVN Independent Voter Survey in California’s 52nd Congressional District.

Over a thousand voters participated in the first of its kind demonstration project. The election was by secret ballot, conducted by Everyone Counts, the international leader in online election technology.

Voters received a unique ID assuring that they could only cast one vote in the survey. All candidates were informed of the Survey by email and registered mail in advance of the election.

This is not a scientific survey and therefore not necessarily indicative of the June 5th election day outcome in which the two highest vote getters will move on to the November General Election.

Voters in the 52nd District were also asked to vote in the 39th Senate District, and the 77th and 78th Assembly District races, depending on their relative district of residence.

Results for the State Assembly and State Senate Districts are limited to only the portion of each State Senate and Assembly district falling within the 52nd Congressional District.

The Survey is part of a larger voter education program funded by the Independent Voter Project (publishers of designed to increase awareness of the upcoming Open Primary election in which all voters, including independents, can vote for any candidate regardless of political party preference, with the top two moving on to the November election.
