Project Description

In 2009 Democracy International conducted a comprehensive election observation project in Afghanistan to evaluate the degree to which the conduct of the country’s presidential election and the broader political and legal contexts conformed to accepted international norms of election administration, human rights, and democratic representation. DI deployed long-term observers around the country to assess electoral preparations and local political climate followed by 62 short-term observers in 13 provinces to observe and report on the balloting and counting process. After election day, DI monitored the vote tabulation and electoral complaint process.
