LucidTalk were at the Mid-Ulster by-election count and carried out an extensive Tally operation, which provides analysis down to the areas covered by each of the 76 Ballot boxes. These ‘ballot-box areas’ represent only 600-1,100 voters per box, and thus they represent small areas of the constituency e.g. a Townland, 4-6 streets/roads etc. This allows a very accurate analysis of voting patterns, turnouts, and comparisons between Unionist and nationalist/republican areas, and rural and urban areas etc.
