I finally got around to compiling the response rates for the 2011 Boyle County Exit Poll. In total, we asked 2,426 people to take the survey (the number of responses + number of those who were asked but declined). Of those we asked, 54% took the survey.
In total, 6,391 people voted in Boyle County on November 8th (33% of all registered voters). We had 1,313 take the survey. That’s 20.5% of all Boyle County voters who filled out our survey. Not bad! That’s why we were fortunate to get such a small margin of error (±2.4%).
