The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) regularly disseminates press releases and statements on critical issues. Our senior representatives meet with policymakers around the world and are often called to testify on the impact of democracy assistance by United States lawmakers. We value every opportunity to highlight the importance of democracy assistance and the need for sustained support for our mission to give citizens a voice in how they are governed.
