Do elections have relevance for the poor?

    Rarely do we find voter turnouts exceeding 75% in elections. The labourer might have participated in the pre-poll survey. But will he vote in the elections?

    In many belts, most of the residents are loyal only to a particular political party. Such belts may not be considered at all in a pre-poll.

    And carrying out a pre-poll survey is like conducting a sample survey instead of a census survey to arrive at the population of the country. There is no alternative here.
