In response to a formal request from the Government of the Republic of Armenia to provide electoral assistance and based on recommendations of the UN Needs Assessment Mission (NAM), UNDP has developed this project to assist the Armenian stakeholders in holding 2018 December pre-term parliamentary elections.
In the pre-electoral period, the Electoral Support Project in Armenia (ESPA) supported the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) of Armenia in the preparation of Voter Authentication Devices (VADs), the procurement of additional VADs and related equipment, the training of VAD operators.
The project also supported the configuration and setting up the cameras, and the procurement of additional cameras. Finally, it helped ensuring the live-streaming and video recording on the Election Day, and organizing and conducting a comprehensive voter education campaign.
