Referendum (refer a change in law to the people), Depending upon the form of government and legislative action, you may have the right to refer a bill or legislative action to the people for a vote, to stop bad law from taking effect.
Initiative (initiate change in the law), If you want to change the law with the vote of the people, you may want to consider the Initiative Petition process. We have been very successful utilizing this action to improve our client's ability to succeed.
Advisory (give governing bodies a piece of your mind), This form of petition can be useful in making a point to elected officials and governing bodies and compelling them to move forward on an action/legislation. Advisory Petitions let elected officials know that your community, organization or effort wants to be heard (before they take action).
Benchmark, While our clients are passionate about their issues, often the public does not share this passion. This broad reaching survey allows the client to test a variety of issues, message point and arguments. The survey is called the "Benchmark" because it is conducted at the beginning of the effort to give the team a "benchmark" from which to measure the future communication efforts., Conducted in the midst of the effort, this survey option affords the team a quick look at the public's perception to various message points, issues, and arguments. It is generally shorter in length that the benchmark poll, but can be as long as necessary to gain vital information.
Focus Groups, If you want to see what people think about you, your project or issue, consider a Focus Group. The Focus Group allows you to survey a group of people at a specific location, and depending upon the location, view the group through a 2-way mirror or via a monitor system. This is a great way to drill down on data to get a real gut level look at why people feel the way they do.
