Abstract: For this data collection, interviews were conducted with voters in 36 states as they left their polling places on election day, November 8, 1994. Respondents were asked a series of questions about their vote choices in the races for Senate, governor, and House of Representatives, and the issues and factors that most influenced those votes. Respondents were also asked if they approved of the way Bill Clinton was handling his job as president, and how they voted in the 1992 presidential election. Questions regarding various referenda and propositions on the ballot and other issues specific to the respondent's state also were asked. Demographic information collected includes sex, race, age, religion, education, political party identification, and family income.
