To form the panel of 30 to 40 residents, potential candidates would be invited to participate through a mailed letter sent to 10,000 randomly selected residences. The letter would ask those residents to respond by filling out a questionnaire which would ask for demographic information such as age, gender, race and ethnicity. Residents would then need to return their response to Healthy Democracy, which would identify the most prominent demographic targets for the panel to match.
At a public lottery selection event, the panel would be selected anonymously and through a third-party selection software, which Healthy Democracy said would ensure the panel would represent the community’s demographics. . .
