At the third stage, inside selected municipalities, local communities were also randomly picked up taking into account the proportion of urban/rural population of voters. Then, a system of independent quota with four criteria insured proportions of males and females, members of generations, different levels of education of voters, and their national commitments if that was relevant in the defined sampling units (local communities). Each checking point in local community included 20 respondents, with quota structure specific for defined settlement.
