IRI observers found voter education materials at a library in Riscani.

IRI observers found voter education materials at a library in Riscani.

LTO’s visited a number of local libraries that  are preparing to serve as resources for voters—displaying voter education materials and training librarians with knowledge on the election in order to answer questions. IRI has also observed a number of training sessions for DEC’s hosted by the CEC’s Center for Continuous Electoral Training. These activities are covered with the generous support of the United States Government.

Many of the LTOs’ interlocutors, however, believe the general public does not currently have enough information about the new electoral system. This could lead to confusion and frustration for voters. IRI encourages the election administration to ensure the education of the population.
