Take The Sumter Item's election survey online to inform our coverage


Our staff at The Sumter Item is here to help you make informed decisions. Our newsroom would like your help in informing our political coverage leading up to the final day of voting on and follow up to Election Day. Please complete a brief survey at www.theitem.com/electionsurvey, and our journalists will use the aggregate data to report about issues that matter to our community in this election. Individual responses will not be reported without express permission.

If you're willing to speak with a reporter on the record about your answers, there is a space to denote that and provide your contact information.

As always, please reach out to our staff with any suggestions about what you'd like to see more of in our newspaper, on our website, through our video and podcast departments and on social media as we continue working to provide valuable information. You can find our election coverage to this point at www.theitem.com/election2020, and you can reach our newsroom at editor@theitem.com.
