Akron residents were asked to voice their expectations of the next mayor of their city in the Akron Decides Poll. A total of 510 residents of Akron were surveyed, yielding a 4.3% margin of error at a 95% confidence level. Surveys were conducted in January and February of 2023, both online and over the phone, including landline and cellphones. Small weights were applied to the final data to ensure the final sample is representative of the adult population of the city of Akron.
This poll was conducted by the Center for Marketing and Opinion Research, with special thanks to the following sponsors:
