Washington residents will be getting phone calls from a group of Chicago high school students this week. These teens are working with the University of Iowa’s political science department to conduct a public opinion poll. Mayor Sandra Johnson says she leaped at the opportunity when the university first contacted her. She says the survey will have around 30 questions. The students are conducting the survey through the Mikva challenge. It’s designed to engage low income Chicago youth in politics. It’s named after former White House Counsel, judge and U-S Congressman Abner Mikva.
