Who Knows What Voters Want?

Alabama’s Public Affairs Research Council took a serious stab at finding out in the months leading up to Alabama’s General Election on Nov. 6. They surveyed policy professionals and registered voters and got this view of the state electorate’s state of mind. Alabama priorities, the survey found, are:

  1. K-12 Education
  2. Healthcare
  3. Government Corruption and Ethics
  4. Mental Health and Substance Abuse
  5. Poverty and Homelessness State

Plus: Jobs and the Economy; Crime and Public Safety; Job Training and Workforce Development: Improving the State’s Image; and Tax Reform.

You can learn more about what fellow voters considered important and why, more factual information about these issues and about specifics of the PARCA study in the Alabama Priorities report.
