About 20,000 respondents aged 18 and older were interviewed at the exit of 600 polling stations throughout Ukraine (except for special polling stations for the military, in prisons and hospitals, as well as polling places abroad and in Russia-occupied areas). The respondents were polled, using personal interviews.
The margin of error is not higher than 0.7%.
The research methodology was developed according to international standards for exit polls, taking into account the long-term experience of employees of both companies in conducting exit polls during the previous elections in Ukraine.
