Election Monitoring


Election monitoring is the practice of watching or overseeing elections to make sure all laws are followed. 

Problems and Purpose

Election rigging and voter fraud are just some of the problems associated with public voting systems. Polls are often run by volunteers or party members who may disuade individuals from voting, may use intimidation to persuade them to vote for another candidate, or may falsify voting cards or records. Election monitors ensure that all voters cast their ballots free from coercion and that votes are counted accurately. 



Participant Selection

Election monitors are often volunteers from national or international organizations.
