Survey finds most people plan to vote for governor

Date Posted: 2002-11-15

Surveys by local media show that a record number of eligible voters will be heading to the polls to elect who will occupy the prefecture Governorís Mansion for the next four years. With opposition divided between two candidates, however, there should be little doubt that incumbent Keiichi Inamine will retain his post.

Nevertheless, an astounding 94 percent of people said that they would vote, according to a survey by OTV. 40 percent of those polled said that instead of voting for a party, they vote for a person. The majority said that the most important job for the governor is to create effective economic policies that guarantee jobs and prosperity. Welfare and good medical care is in the minds of 31 percent of voters, and the more the older they are.

About 30 percent said that the governor should work harder to decrease the number of U.S. military installations in the prefecture. The OTV survey covered 1,500 persons who were interviewed by telephone.
