New report on electoral assistance

Dec 20, 2012

In March 2012, over 230 electoral practitioners from over 60 countries came together in Mombasa, Kenya, to review and discuss the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in civil- and voter registration. A particular focus was on the sustainability and effective use of biometrics-recognition systems. The workshop also tackled the controversial topic of E-Voting, clearing out possible advantages and disadvantages.

The workshop was organized by UNDP and the EU, and the Joint EC-UNDP Task Force on Electoral Assistance has now released the final report of the workshop as a way to spread the information and lessons learned from the workshop. The report was launched as a sister publication to the e-Learning course dealing with the same topic.
