Technology offers new mechanisms for conducting traditionally manual processes, and elections are no exception. A growing number of countries at various stages of development are considering electronic technologies in electoral processes. With this new technology come benefits and challenges.

Resulting from a close collaboration between the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI), Implementing and Overseeing Electronic Voting and Counting Technologies, serves as a critical source of information on election technologies.

The manual provides insight on key issues related to electronic voting and counting; it will be particularly useful to specialists in democracy and governance, election management bodies (EMBs), civil society organizations, political parties and other stakeholders engaged in electoral processes around the world.

Made possible by the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the publication is adaptable for use by readers at different levels of engagement with these technologies.
