This year the ACEEEO has reached a milestone in its history, again. It was already 30 years ago that leading electoral officials of six former socialist countries decided to establish the Association of Central and Eastern European Election Officials. Since 1991 the name has changed a bit, but the abbreviation remained, and ACEEEO has grown to include representatives of Election Management Bodies of 25 countries and established effective links with many international and intergovernmental institutions working on elections and democracy.
In order to celebrate the 30-year-anniversary of this outstanding example of international cooperation, the ACEEEO invites its Members and Partners to take an active part in the programs planned to be implemented this year. Among others, we invite our colleagues to commemorate the Global Elections Day on the first Thursday of February; to share their memories about the elections of the last 3 decades in form of photos; to voice their ideas about the future of elections and send messages to future young voters; and participate in the upcoming Anniversary Annual Conference of the ACEEEO.
