Election Advisory

Putting the Pieces Together for a Successful Ballot Measure

Placing a measure on the ballot requires strong attention to detail, an understanding of the political process and the ability to listen carefully to all points of view.

Preparation.
DS&C makes sure time is spent working with the client to develop a capital plan that addresses both immediate and long-range project needs.

Analysis.
Through quantitative analysis of tax rate impacts and voter survey research, critical questions are asked and analyzed:

  • Is there voter support for the proposed projects?
  • How sensitive are voters to various tax rates?
  • What are the plusses and minuses of the upcoming election dates?

Execution.
Finally, the finished plan is used to draft ballot language and develop a public information strategy.
