ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some voters will be questioned as they leave the polls Tuesday.

Albany State University students in the Methods of Research and Honors class at ASU will be outside five polling locations from seven a-m to seven p-m election day conducting exit poll surveys. The survey's only take about three minutes to complete. The class has been working to get the questions just right and the information will help them next semester as they analyze why people voted the way they did in Albany.

"We'll be asking pretty basic questions, who did you vote for for President, what factors decided that as far as who do you believe has the most experience, who brought the most change who has showed the most strength and character?" said Victor Sibley, an ASU Student

"In order to actually graduate you have to have your senior paper and we're using the statistics and the things that we find at the polls and we're going to us it in our senior paper so it will be a direct correlation with our graduation," said Joleigh Sartiano, an ASU Student.

Information voters share is anomyous. The information will only be used for the students gathering it and won't be shared with either campaign. Exit polling will be done at Putney First Baptist Church, Merry Acres Middle School, Carver Teen Center, Branch Road, and Palmyra Methodist Church.
