Berkeley IGS Poll in Progress This Week

This week the Institute of Governmental Studies will be completing another of its periodic polls of the California public about major political and public policy issues facing the state.  It is a legitimate non-partisan poll sponsored by the University that is carried out by distributing email invitations to a carefully constructed random sample of the state’s registered voters.  


The opinions of all survey participants will remain confidential and not be identified with themselves individually.   Results will be released publicly through a series of poll reports posted onto the Berkeley IGS Poll website and made available to the news media in early-mid February, 2021.


We encourage all those who receive an invitation to complete the survey so that the poll accurately represents the opinions of a cross-section of all state voters.
