The February 2008 Survey of the Performance of American Elections studied experiences with election administration during the "Super Tuesday" presidential primary in 2008. The survey covered the 15 states that held primaries for both major political parties. This study was a pilot for the 2008 Survey of the Performance of American Elections. The questionnaire asks a series of questions about the experience voters had when they voted in the presidential primary in these 15 states. The survey sample included an Internet study of 200 registered voters in each state and a parallel telephone study of another 200 registered voters in five of the states. The total sample size of the study was 4,000.
