Election Verification Exit Polls

In 2006, EI and The Warren Poll conducted the USA's first ever Election Verification Exit Poll(EVEP) [2]. The exit poll comprised two Pennsylvania congressional districts during the 2006 general election.

In May 2008, EI and The Warren Poll joined with the Election Defense Alliance (EDA) to conduct an EVEP in the Kentucky Democratic primary [3] to test and codify procedures.

A third EVEP was announced for the November 2008 general election. [4] EDA, EI and The Warren Poll claim to be committed to "complete transparency in our exit polls." [1]
