Exit polls, which are quick surveys conducted immediately after voting, aim to gauge voter sentiments. Unlike pre-election opinion polls, exit polls ask voters who they actually voted for, making them potentially more accurate.

These polls typically start being released right after voting ends on the final election day, and are conducted by interviewing voters as they leave polling stations. In India, exit polls were pioneered by the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) in Delhi during the 1960s.
