The basic design (simple random sampling) consists of selecting a group of n units in such a way that each sample of size n has the same chance of being selected. Thus, we can obtain a random sample of eligible voters in a bond-issue poll by drawing names from the list of registered voters in such a way that each sample of size n has the same probability of selection. 11. At this point, we merely state that a simple random sample will contain as much information on community preference as any other sample survey design, provided all voters in the community have similar socioeconomic backgrounds.
