NATIONAL COALITION ON BLACK CIVIC PARTICIPATION TO SHARE KEY FINDINGS FROM ELECTION DAY EXIT POLLS IN KEY BATTLEGROUND & SOUTHERN STATES

VIRTUAL MEDIA BRIEFING, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 17TH AT 1:00 PM, EST
 
Washington, DC (November 14, 2022) –  Last Tuesday’s midterm elections proved to be one of the most consequential in this nation’s history. As part of its Unity ’22 Black Voting & Power Building Campaign, The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP) and its state partners conducted an exit poll survey of more than 2,500 Black voters at polling locations in key battleground and southern states throughout the country.  The national survey includes responses from Black voters in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland.
 

The purpose of the exit poll was to track Black voters' experience at the polls, gauge the importance of key issues driving them to the polls and a ranking of the policy priorities they want the next Congress to address.
 
On Thursday, November 17, at 1:00 p.m., EST, the NCBCP will hold a virtual media briefing to present and discuss these findings and their relevance in future elections, including the Georgia runoff.  Interested media organizations are invited to register and participate in the virtual media briefing.
