Using the 2023 voters registry from the Electoral Commission as a sample frame, thirty percent of the constituencies in each area were chosen at random, and the regional quota was distributed based on the total number of voters in each of the chosen seats.

It explained that the presidential result was based on ‘likely voters’ model while the regional and constituency polls were based on all voters’ model which included responses of voters who had indicated that they would not vote.

It said the poll was cross-sectional and was carried out in 82 constituencies in all the 16 regions, adding that the polls were not carried out in churches, mosques, associations or in groups to avoid herding.
