UNDEF funds new guide to developing accurate voter lists in transitional democracies
An UNDEF-funded project has launched a guide to developing accurate voter lists in transitional democracies. The handbook is based on a comparative analysis of transitional countries in Europe, including Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Georgia, Hungary, Latvia, and Moldova. It covers the full range of voter registration, from general requirements and legal frameworks to administrative and technical aspects, best practices and practical recommendations. The guide was compiled by the Budapest-based Association of European Election Officials, which plans to form a mobile group of experts providing practical, concrete support through short-term expert technical missions to countries in need.
