Linda Parks Tops IVN Survey of Independent Voters in CD-26

by Kymberly Bays, published



The results are in for the IVN Independent Voter Survey in California’s 26th 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 in the shared territory with the 19th State Senate were also asked to pick amongst the candidates in that race.

Results for the State Senate District are only from portions of the district falling within the 26th.
