The March 31, 2002 Exit Poll is the fourth exit poll conducted in Ukraine.
Exit polls were conducted during the March 1998 parliamentary elections, and
 the two rounds of the 1999 presidential elections. The previous polls,
which were organized by Democratic Initiatives Foundation, were conducted
successfully and produced highly accurate results. Exit polls also provide a
public control mechanism over the vote-tallying process.

The poll was conducted independently from any and all electoral political
parties and blocs.
