PACE has conducted the nation-wide survey to assess the electoral environment recruiting around 500 volunteers.

The Goal of Survey

While a number of electoral surveys were conducted in 2014 and 2015, PACE was interested in gathering information that would directly inform its observation strategies and implementation. PACE aimed to gather more information about public opinion about elections and to assess the logistical environment and level of access around the country. Specifically, PACE conducted the survey with the following goals:
• To examine public knowledge and engagement with elections and to understand how the public assesses the quality of elections; and to
• Conduct an assessment of the communication, transport, security and level of openness around the country that would inform planning for election observation.
