We polled almost 2,000 people in three locations in the county (Gaithersburg, Bethesda, and Wheaton) and were able to get these statistics through our research:
Approximately 5% of people could name a county executive candidate.
Less than 10% of people had voted in a local election (city/county).
Over 95% of people polled cared about issues the local government plays a role in controlling.
Just over 55% of people polled said they would at least “probably vote” in the election for county executive after we spoke to them.
I invite everyone in MoCo to join me at this debate (free to attend). I’d love to meet a bunch of you and talk a little bit about MoCo.
See you there!
