ABSTRACT
This article summarizes the findings of the effect of exit polls on voting behavior. Both macro and micro methods have been used, and no methods are perfect. Exit polls appear to cause small declines in total voting in areas where the polls close late for those elections where the exit polls predict a clear winner when previously the race had been considered close.
