Re:Only 6 days left to propose questions
Date:January 9, 2008

There is only one week left to propose questions for inclusion on upcoming American National Election Studies (ANES) surveys!

1) The 2008 ANES Time Series
You may submit a proposal for questions to be included in the 2008 ANES Time Series face-to-face presidential election study. The time series continues a string of interviews that began in 1948. We are accepting two kinds of proposals: changes to the ANES "core" questions (the set of questions that the ANES Time Series asks repeatedly over time) and changes to the rest of the survey (including proposals to capture opinions and attitudes that are especially relevant to the November 2008 presidential and congressional elections).

2) Terrorism and Homeland Security
We are also running a special competition in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security. For that competition, we are accepting proposals pertinent to the intersection between elections and DHS emphases on terrorism, natural disasters, risk perception, and preparedness. Questions from successful proposals in this competition can be included on the 2008-2009 ANES Panel Study and/or the 2008 ANES Time Series study.

We accept proposals through the ANES Online Commons. Please go to its website to get more information about these opportunities: http://www.electionstudies.org/onlinecommons.htm

The ANES Online Commons will continue to accept these proposals until 3:00pm Eastern Time (noon Pacific Time) on January 15, 2008.

The Online Commons will remain open for two additional weeks thereafter to allow commentary and revision of the proposals.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,
Jon Krosnick and Arthur Lupia
