With the election coming up next Tuesday, we wanted to delve into what brings voters to the polls. What do they want changed? What do they want candidates to address in their neighborhoods?
We decided to ask residents using a survey we called “Valley Votes 2020.” We collected over 150 responses. Residents explained with short answers what worried them about their neighborhoods, and ranked their most salient issues.
Responses came from up and down the San Joaquin Valley, with a majority hailing from Fresno County, followed by Kern County.
Listen to the interview above between reporter Laura Tsutsui and Valley Edition host Kathleen Schock to hear more about the survey and what residents said matters most to them.
