Lyceum poll shows perhaps surprising results about fundamental elections changes
Democracy the theme of this year’s survey
Texans surveyed last month in the annual Texas
Lyceum poll were surprisingly open to significant changes in the
state’s elections, including ideas such as automatically registering citizens,
giving felons the right to vote and making Election Day a national holiday.
Democracy was the theme of this year’s survey from the
non-profit non-partisan Lyceum.
In general, the 1,000 Texans polled like the idea of
democracy as the best form of government. In practice, voters were a little
less sure, with older voters being more supportive and younger voters more open
to adjustments in the current system.
