A Survey of Internet Use for Political Information

A couple of professors at Glenn Reynolds’ stomping grounds have an online survey they’d like you to participate in:

The purpose of this survey is to examine the Internet’s influence on the U.S. political process. Although we recognize that the Internet is a global medium, we asked that only those individuals who are eligible to vote in the U.S. participate in this survey.

This study is being conducted for academic purposes by researchers at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. The survey has been approved by the UT Institutional Review Board. All responses will be kept confidential and no identifying personal factors will be used in reporting the results of this survey. Your email address is used only to check for duplicate transmission.

To take the survey, begin clicking on the response options. After you are finished, just click “send”. Completion of this survey will be taken as your permission to participate in this research. If at any time you wish to withdraw from the survey just hit the “back” button on your browser to return to the previous Web site. There is no penalty for withdrawing.

The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.
