ST. PAUL (Dec. 3, 2014) — Partners shared data on historic ALANA voter exit poll in MN. 368 ALANA voters from 64 cities which included 85 MN House and 45 Senate districts. 21 percent voted early. Highly engaged group of voters. We colored the vote. Now #ColorMNPolicy,programs and institutions was the rallying cry. For data see. http://lnkd.in/bcK_uUu.
We have always colored the vote in Minnesota. Now it is time to Color Minnesota’s Policy Infrastructure. We ask policy makers to keep this simple question always on the policy radar: Is this policy, program or organization culturally intelligent and relevant?
The online survey was conducted on November 4, 2014 and kept live over that weekend to allow voters time to complete the survey. 368 ALANA voters completed the survey either completely or partially. These voters represented 64 cities, 83 House and 45 Senate Districts. These voters were spread out across Minnesota. The survey was promoted via partner organization and community networks. Together these voters represent an ALANA economic base of $12 billion. Very engaged group of voters: almost a third volunteered in a political campaign and almost half attended a political fundraiser; most were contacted by a candidate. Top policy priorities on their mind: Jobs, Closing the Achievement Gap, Business Development, Immigration, Health Care.
