The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) provides long-term, non-partisan support to election management bodies in Egypt to increase their capacity to administer national and local elections, as well as referenda. IFES also conducts activities with local partners in Egypt, including local think tanks and universities, to increase public understanding of electoral processes and voter rights and responsibilities, and to support dialogue on electoral reform. IFES has collaborated closely with the High Election Commission, the Presidential Election Commission, and various other government agencies.

IFES has played a key role supporting the implementation of elections and referenda in Egypt through the provision of electoral commodities, such as secure ballot boxes and tamper-evident seals to enhance electoral transparency and security, as well as through voter information campaigns.
