9780761836766: Every Vote Counts: The Role of Elections in Building Democracy (IFES Democracy Collection)

Every Vote Counts starts from the premise that free and fair elections are the foundation upon which democracy is built. Given this fact, the study explores the role of foreign electoral assistance in helping to spread democracy around the globe during the past two decades. Among other issues, its authors examine: (1) the challenges of organizing elections in two of the most demanding environments of recent years (Iraq and Afghanistan); (2) the effect of African popular opinion about the quality of elections on citizens' trust in their political institutions; (3) how Ukrainians have chosen legal and electoral means to resolve disputes rather than open conflict; (4) Indonesia's growing understanding of democracy, which has resulted in increased participation; and (5) electoral assistance as a critical component of American public diplomacy and efforts to reach out to the rest of the world.

Each chapter of Every Vote Counts documents the experiences of democracy professionals, who often use case studies to describe what worked-and what didn't-on the ground, instead of relying on mere conjectures. Above all, these experts underscore the importance of providing democratic assistance long enough for local officials to acquire the expertise and confidence they need to manage elections on their own.

From the Back Cover:

"Every Vote Counts carries an underlying message that democracy is attainable on every continent and can help make the world a more peaceful and humane place... Read this book, reflect on it, learn from it, and use it as you go forward to help return the power to determine a nation's future to its own people."
--Lech Walesa, Former President of Poland (1990-1995)
