AbstractIn a unique block vote system where each voter is allowed to vote for two candidates in his constituency, tests are proposed for various sets of hypotheses on the consistency of results of polls conducted by different institutions. The meanings, implications and relationships of these hypotheses are discussed. The results of polls conducted by three academic institutions on the elections by geographical constituencies to the Legislative Council of Hong Kong in 1991 are analysed. The critical values of the test statistics can be closely approximated using chi-squared distributions. It is found that the tests give very similar results with the conclusion that the three institutions gave very different results statistically.
