Voter News Service Statement - Exit Poll Breakdown

Statement Released by VNS

Voter News Service said Tuesday that it is not satisfied with the accuracy of today's exit poll analysis and will not be in a position on Election Night to publish the results of state and national surveys of voter attitudes.

News organizations use the exit polls to provide context to election returns. VNS officials said the exit poll data are being collected but are not being properly analyzed by the organization's new computer system.

Voter News Service (VNS) and our member organizations place the highest priority on providing accurate data. Two years ago, we began a very ambitious four-year plan to replace our entire system of gathering this data. This plan included a complete overhaul of both hardware and software and the manner in which all data are analyzed.

In addition to exit poll information, VNS provides its members with an unofficial tabulated vote and with projections of election winners in races for Congress and governorships.

ENDS
