Complicated it is not.
In fact, the survey is one of the simplest I have ever run across.
It’s being conducted in the McHenry County Sheriff’s race.
I would assume that incumbent Keith Nygren is the only one with enough money to do such calling.
He had $73,324.17 in the bank at the end of July. Democratic Party opponent Mike Mahon had $14,116.74.
Green Party candidate Gus Philpott was not mentioned in the questioning and has apparently not raised or spent the $3,000 necessary to require one to file a campaign disclosure report with the Illinois State Board of Elections.
The only demographic information requested was whether one was a Republican or a Democrat, I am informed.
I wonder how the over one-third of the people who identify themselves as Independents replied.
If it is canvass, that is, calling people to see who support a given candidate, a lot more people will be called.
So, if you get a call, please drop me an email and tell me about it.

Update: I now have been told gender was requested. If anyone got one of the calls and can add information, please do so in a comment.

And, for those who are politically interested, please be my ears on these telephone calls. Jot down a bit of what is said and send me an email. If you get mailers, especially from county board candidates and in the 8th congressional district, I would appreciate your keeping me informed when they come.
