LA Votes Exit Polls & Polling Place Studies

The Los Angeles Votes Project is a series of exit polls and polling place studies that examine the relationships among voting, policy, precinct quality, racial and ethnic relations, community relations and services, civic participation, quality of life, demographics, and the effects of exit polls on resident perceptions and civic participation in Los Angeles. The series began in 2005 with the City of Los Angeles mayoral primary election, when StudyLA implemented a breakthrough sampling methodology, the racially stratified homogenous precinct approach, in an effort to address the exit poll controversies in the 2000 presidential election. Since then, StudyLA has conducted 11 voting studies and has become the largest per-capita exit poll nationwide. A total of 22,522 Angeleno voters have been surveyed since 2005.
