Elections and COVID-19

The global spread of COVID-19 has already profoundly impacted the health and welfare of citizens around the world. Decisions being made about how elections are run during the pandemic will have a further profound effect, shaping the health of democracy in the future.

The ESRC has funded this project on that involves commissioning a range of country case studies, in collaboration with International IDEA, that will be published on this website and eventually in an edited volume.

The project is led by Toby James (University of East Anglia), Alistair Clark (University of Newcastle) and Erik Asplund (International IDEA).

Cases and other resources from Electoral Management Network members will be shared on this page as they become available. Please get in touch to share your resources.

Materials are now been maintained on the Electoral Integrity Website, please therefore visit: Elections and Covid-19 — The Electoral Integrity Project EIP.
