Constructed list based on geographic location

Dear all,

I'm looking for the best way to script a question for elections. I need to display names of candidates based on their geographic location. There will be a total of 540 offers.

1 offer = (for example)
1- mr x, green party
2- mrs y, yellow party
3- mr w, grey party
4- mr z, black party
5- I will not vote

Thanks for your precious help,

For larger lists, dropdown lists tend to be useful, rather then displaying radio buttons and check boxes.

Zachary Anderson from Sawtooth Software has produced a dropdown that permits respondents to type text to narrow the dropdown items. This may be of interest to you?

Thank you Paul.
Offers are independent from one another.
This solution would mislead the respondents.
I have to display all candidates at the same time one below the others.
Unfortunately this does not seem to be the best solution.
OK, fair enough. I understand.

Can you be more specific with how you would like things displayed. I'm not familiar with your parties / geographic locations.

For example, could you ask a drill down question and then use that information to only display a portion of the candidate list?

I would also send the request to support@sawtoothsoftware.com for their advice. I'm sure they have seen this request before.

Let me know how you go. I'd be interested in a neat solution.
