Blog @ MoreWhat.comThe purpose of this post falls more into the category of PSA or simply an announcement. You may or may not know about this November 14th event. It could prove interesting. Or it may just be another one of those things. This is not an endorsement or promotion for the event but the press release below is. While Campaigns and Elections magazine's website is a place I visit from time to time, OnePoliticalVoice.com is not something I'm familiar with. But since they are holding a live internet national poll today, the information may come in handy. For all you political junkies out there this will probably be of interest or you already know about it. For the rest of you it may simply be a welcome diversion. Don't blame me if you get fired playing with this at work. Links are in the text below.
OnePolticalVoice.com to Conduct Live Internet Based National Poll at Campaigns & Elections Seminar
in Washington, D.C. on November 14th
OnePolticalVoice.com (OPV), a political market research firm, announced today that it will team with Campaigns & Elections (C&E) Magazine to conduct a live internet based poll in conjunction with C&E's 'New Media in Politics' seminar on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 in Washington, DC.
Leawood, Kansas (PRWEB) November 9, 2007 -- OnePolticalVoice.com (OPV), a political market research firm, announced today that it will team with Campaigns & Elections (C&E) Magazine to conduct a live internet based poll in conjunction with C&E's 'New Media in Politics' seminar on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 in Washington, DC. Beginning at 9:30 am, the public and members of the media are invited to take the survey by visiting the OPV website, www.onepoliticalvoice.com, and clicking the link to "Live OPV/C&E Survey". To monitor the real time results throughout the day, log into http://www.onepoliticalvoice.com/CandEsurveyresults.cfm and hit the refresh button as often as desired. Final results will be tabulated and presented to the live seminar audience at the end of the day.
The seminar will be podcast live on the C&E website at www.campaignsandelections.com.
"This live online poll will demonstrate OPV's polling capabilities in a truly unique manner," said Gene Stegeman, OPV Managing Director. "Everyone will have the opportunity to see actual results as they come in across the country -- and they will see all the demographic information associated with each respondent: age, gender, education, income, political affiliation and temperament. It will allow observers to draw their own conclusions, then compare those conclusions with the final analysis of OPV experts at 5:00 pm that evening. It will be a lot of fun while providing invaluable insight to our country's thoughts on a number of critical issues."
The poll, covering a wide range of national issues and numbering approximately 20 questions in length, will include several questions provided on the morning of November 14th by participants attending the training seminar. Once questions are finalized, the poll will be emailed to individuals who have "opted in" across the country.
Today, OPV has direct access to over 11 million individuals who have expressed a willingness to participate in online surveys and polls. "Our research and that of others, show a dramatic increase in individuals who are using cell phones only and opting not to have traditional home based telephone service. As this trend continues, the most effective way to reach these individuals will be online," said Stegeman.
Established in early 2007, the market research arm of OnePoliticalVoice dates to the 2002 election cycle. Before that, their database development and survey engine expertise began in 1992. Headquartered in Leawood, KS, with an office in New York and one to open in Washington, DC, OnePoliticalVoice.com includes a team of online survey professionals and political analysts with over 30 years of survey construction and analysis expertise.
