  • 1. 1) Aloha, were conducting a short survey about the upcoming election in Hawaii this November--including the race for Governor that includes David Ige, Mufi Hannemann, and Duke Aiona [candidate name order rotated]. In the November election, will you most likely vote early, vote on Election Day, are you not sure when or where you will vote, or are you not likely to vote? 2) If you vote in the race for Governor between Democrat David Ige, Independent candidate Mufi Hannemann, Liberatarian Jeff Davis, and Republican Duke Ainoa [candidate name order rotated], what would you do? 3) If the election for Governor were only between David Ige and Duke Aiona [candidate name order rotated], with no other candidates, what would you do? 4) There will also be an election for U.S. Senate between Brian Schatz and Cam Cavasso [candidate name order rotated]. If you vote in that race, what would you do? 5a) First Congressional District Only: There will also be an election for U.S. Congress in the First Congressional District between Mark Takai and Charles Djou [candidate name order rotated]. If you vote in that race, what would you do? 5b) Second Congressional District Only: There will also be an election for U.S. Congress in the Second Congressional District between Tulsi Gabbard and Kawika Crowley [candidate name order rotated]. If you vote in that race, what would you do?
  • 2. 6) Please think back to the Primary elections that took place in August. Did you vote in the Democratic primary, the Republican primary, or neither one? 7) If Voted in Democratic Primary Only: In the Democratic primary for Governor, did you vote for David Ige, or Neil Abercrombie [candidate name order rotated]? 8) There will also be a number of proposed amendments to Hawaiis Constitution on the November ballot One of them would amend Hawaiis constitution to allow the state to use public funds to help pay for privately run early education programs for children in the years before they start Kindergarten. Would you most likely vote for this amendment, vote against this amendment, or not vote either way on this amendment? 9) Another proposed amendment would require the states Judicial Selection Commission to publicly disclose its list of nominees who are being considered as new judges in Hawaii. Currently, the Commission is not required to disclose its list of nominees, but is allowed to do so if it chooses to. Would you most likely vote for this amendment, vote against this amendment, or not vote either way on this amendment? 10) Another proposed amendment would raise the mandatory retirement age for state justices and judges from 70 years of age, to 80. This would allow older state judges to remain in their positions for a longer time. Would you most likely vote for this amendment, vote against this amendment, or not vote either way on this amendment? 11) In general, when you are considering how you will vote on a constitutional amendment ballot question, what is the top source of information you use to help you make up your mind? Is it news reports about the ballot measures? Is it information provided by groups that are either supporting or opposing the measures? Is it conversations you have with friends or family? Or is it simply reading the questions as they appear on the ballot? Or, do you generally not vote on constitutional amendment ballot questions?
