the exclusive providers of exit poll data

Edison Research began exit polling in 1996, and since 2003 we have provided election projections and analysis for the news organizations that comprise the National Election Pool (NEP). We’re currently preparing to conduct exit polls for the 2020 election, and will provide vote results for every county in the country on behalf of the NEP. The NEP effort is the only national exit poll.

The national exit polls are perhaps the largest, most logistically challenging research projects in the world. We task thousands of interviewers on one single day to administer and report hundreds of thousands of interviews and then deliver the data in real time.

When you hear election projections, results or analysis about who voted for whom, that information comes from Edison Research.
