IFES President and CEO On Technology in Elections
In August, the Instituto Federal Electoral (IFE), the Mexican elections commission, hosted a four-day conference to explore key electoral topics, including challenges in the administration and organization of elections; political and media rights in elections; and access to electoral justice. The conference brought together election experts, practitioners and academics from all over the world as well as government officials. The event took place in Morelia, Mexico.
The conference included a series of panels of three to four experts that addressed the topics debated during the conference. Bill Sweeney, IFES President and CEO, spoke on one of these panels about the use of technology in elections. The video of his presentation can be seen here. His talk, given in English, was simultaneously translated into Spanish.
