    Hi everyone!
    I am writing to ask for your help in a study regarding internet usage and political attitudes being conducted at Michigan State University by participating in a brief online survey. This study is an exploration in seeing how patterns of internet usage are related to political activities and personal attitudes.

    Your answers will be collected in a completely anonymous manner in which no individual responses will ever be identified. Also, this survey is voluntary, and participants are free to exit at anytime they choose.

    To show my thanks and appreciation for your help with this study, I will hold a raffle in which all respondents will have the opportunity to win a $100 cash prize! Three prizes will be awarded once the data collection is completed, likely somewhere around the end of February.

    The online survey is expected to take about 10-15 minutes, and can be accessed by clicking here: Powered by Zap Survey

    If you have any questions or comments about this study, please feel free to write to me , or contact the Department of Sociology at Michigan State University.

    Thank you very much for helping with this important study.
    Sincerely,
    Benjamin Gross
    Michigan State University

    no, the kid posting the survey said it would take up to 15 minutes. Which is why I asked what I get for my 15 minutes. I don't do surveys if there's nothing in it for me.
