Getting out the vote among women and young people in Azerbaijan

For Azerbaijan's presidential elections on 9 October 2013, and parliamentary elections in November 2015, UNDEF funds a project in Azerbaijan to build awareness of electoral process and voting rights among local communities, with a special focus on women and youth.  In this way, it works to strengthen participation in democratic processes of the future. Implemented by Azerbaijan Youth Union, the project held two days of training in basic principles of voting rights in Lenkaran City in August 2013. Following the workshop, participants with previously weak knowledge of electoral processes rights voiced their determination to vote.
