Polling methodology: The Mainichi Shimbun conducted the voter survey in cooperation with Kyodo News over the two-day period of Oct. 19–20, 2021. A computer-aided random digit sampling (RDS) method was used to generate phone numbers (both landlines and cell phones) randomly by computer, and an interactive voice response system was used to call those numbers. For mobile phones, people were asked through audio guidance to cooperate in the survey, and those who agreed to participate were sent a short message service (SMS) text message providing a link to an online answer form. For landline phones, respondents were asked questions by interactive voice response system and pushed buttons on their phones to indicate their answer. The target number of valid responses was set at 500 per constituency. Valid responses were received from 76,525 mobile numbers and 97,499 landline phone numbers for a total of 174,024. The data was analyzed by Japan News Network (JNN).
