The Ghana Election Poll is powered by GhanaWeb and the Africa Consumer Panel that is a partnership between the degital publisher Africa Business Communities and renowned market research firm MSI-ACI.
The online poll is conducted every month and the results are published at the beginning of every other month on GhanaWeb.com. It is devoid of spam as the respondents can take the survey only once. The MSI-ACI platform that hosts the survey records the device on which the respondent takes the poll and does not allow for a second attempt from the same device.
The Ghana Election Poll isn’t the same as the open-acess poll which is running on GhanaWeb. The latter lets it’s members to self-select into participation and its outcomes can’t be generalized because it’s a representative of only the members of the poll .
