How to BeHEARD
Participation is easy. Unlike traditional telephone polls, which require participants to complete surveys on the interviewers’ schedule, the BeHEARD Baltimore poll allows participants to complete surveys at a time and location convenient for them. Panel members can complete surveys on their personal computer, tablet, or smartphone. Panelists can also participate using computers available at their local library.
BeHEARD panel members will receive email invitations to complete surveys every few weeks about current events, policy issues, or breaking news. Polls will generally be open for 1 week. Polls on breaking news may only be open for one day.
Participation is Voluntary
Participation in the BeHEARD Baltimore poll is voluntary although sign up is required. Participants may choose to leave the panel at any time.
Participation is Confidential
As a university-based polling center, we protect your confidentiality. Participant responses are never linked to their identity and all responses are reported in the aggregate. We do not share, sell, or rent our participants’ contact information.
