With only one month to go until Election Day, Edison Research prepares a staff of 6,000 to tell the world who won, and why.

For the upcoming 2018 General Election, Edison Research will provide exit polls and will tabulate the national vote across every county in the United States for ABC News, CBS News, CNN, and NBC News. In all, Edison will mobilize a trained staff of over 6,000, including exit poll interviewers, field supervisors, county vote reporters, data entry operators, and data analysts. Edisonís survey team will interview over 100,000 voters as they leave polling places across the country.

As has been the case since 2004, Edisonís national exit poll will be the only one conducted in the United States.

This survey will provide vital information on voting trends, differences in vote patterns by gender, age, region, and other demographic and geographic groups. These surveys will also provide analysis about the issues that drive American voters to make their choices. Edisonís national exit poll will include voters from every state, while Edisonís state surveys will provide even more in-depth analysis of all the key U.S. Senate and Governorsí races. In addition to its polling, Edisonís vote collectors will fan out across over 4,000 localities across all 50 states on Election Night, helping Edison provide accurate and timely vote returns to viewers across the country.
