New Delhi, May 19 (TIWN): After over a month-long polling process, the voting for Lok Sabha election 2019 will finally end today evening. This year saw polls conducted in seven phases. The elections that started on April 11, went on till May 19. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.

With four days still left for the results, the nation is keenly waiting to know what poll pundits are predicting. Exit polls are considered as an indicator on which party is likely to form the government after results are announced. An exit poll is based on data collected from voters after they have cast their votes. Exit polls are conducted by numerous organisations and each one uses a different sample of voters.

In 2004, the EC had moved Law Ministry seeking an amendment to the Representation of the People Act. It had urged for a ban on both exit and opinion polls during the period specified by the poll body. It’s recommendations were accepted in part. In February 2010, restrictions were put on exit polls through the introduction of Section 126(A) in the Act.
