Survey of Local Elected Officials on Threats and Harassment: Q1 2024

The seventh quarterly benchmarking report provides updated findings from the Q1 2024 nationally representative BDI-CivicPulse survey of over 400 local elected officials and over 200 school board officials on threats and harassment, putting the total number of participants across all six surveys at more than 2,900. This research is produced as part of an ongoing joint project launched by BDI and CivicPulse in August 2022 to conduct quarterly national surveys of local officials on their experiences facing threats and harassment. These quarterly updates allow us to identify spikes or shifts in hostility and monitor important trends in threats and harassment as we enter the 2024 election cycle.
