Texas Trends Survey 2021
Election Reform and Redistricting
The Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston and the Executive Master of Public Administration Program in the Barbara Jordan – Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University are conducting a five-year survey project to study Texas’s changing population, with emphasis on the state’s Black, Latino and Asian residents. In addition to a representative sample of all Texans, the inaugural survey includes an oversample of the former two groups in the first report to allow for an objective and statistically valid report of their diverse opinions and experiences.
The results of the 2021 survey will be presented in four separate reports: abortion and transgender athlete policies, election reform and redistricting, electric vehicles, and criminal justice. This report examines Texans’ attitudes related to nine election reforms passed by the Texas Legislature in 2021 as well as opinions about redistricting in the Lone Star State.
