New Survey From Samsung Mobile Shows Bipartisan Support of a Text Election
A survey by Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) suggests that many teens and their parents across the U.S. would rather vote by text message on their cell phones in the next election rather than go to the polls.
- More than six in ten (61%(a)) of respondents of legal voting age, age 18 and older, would be open to voting by text.
- Eight in ten (80%) teens, ages 13-17, say that if they were allowed to vote in this year’s Presidential election, they’d do it by text message instead of going to the polls.
- More than half of all Democrats, Republicans and Independents surveyed say that if allowed, they’d text in their Presidential vote.
The survey, commissioned by Samsung Mobile, was conducted by Kelton Research and included 300 American teens ages 13 – 19 and 500 American parents with children ages 13 – 19.
(a) All decimals are rounded to the nearest percentage point. This may result in certain numerical totals adding up to slightly more or slightly less than 100%.
