Thank you for taking time to complete our survey.

As part of our research to gain more insight into Pennsylvania politics, we are asking all candidates in the November 2018 election for state government to participate in a short web survey about their motivation for running for office, their past involvement in politics, and how their campaigns are connecting with voters.

Your responses will be confidential and used only for research purposes. The responses to the survey will not be used for political purposes.

If you have questions or wish to further discuss our survey, please feel free to contact Matthew M. Schousen, Professor of Government at Franklin & Marshall College, by telephone (717 358 4345) or email
