Recently polling commissioned by SiX shows that voters want the legislature and the governor to focus on policies that would create an economy that works for everyone, make the investment needed for a first-class education system, and make affordable health care available to more North Carolina residents. Voters believe strongly that polluters, not ratepayers, should pay the costs of pollution. Respondents believe that voting should be as accessible as possible and oppose efforts to make access to the voting booth more difficult. Respondents also felt strongly that public dollars should be used for traditional public schools first, and oppose using taxpayer money to fund private and charter schools when public schools have inadequate funding available.
