MINSK, 4 August (BelTA) – The Youth Laboratory of Sociological Studies of the Belarusian Committee of Youth Associations is ready to conduct an exit poll at the presidential election in Belarus on 9 August, BelTA has learned.
In accordance with the sociological sample, a survey network has been developed and tested and almost 1,000 interviewers have been selected and trained. They will conduct surveys at more than 300 polling stations. All of the interviewers will wear a special uniform featuring the organization's logo. They will also be equipped with face masks and gloves to ensure safety amid the ongoing pandemic. Foreign scientific consultants have been invited to monitor the compliance of the exit poll with the international standards. Experts from Sweden, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Austria, Israel and Serbia confirmed their participation.
During the presidential elections in 2010 and 2015, the Youth Laboratory of Sociological Studies already conducted the exit polls. During the last political campaign, the results of their surveys were quite close to the results of the vote and almost completely coincided with the results of the exit polls carried out by other reputable foreign organizations.
