1. Global Elections Day

6 February 2019

Next week on the 6 February the ACEEEO community and its partners celebrate the Global Elections Day (GED).

On the occasion of this celebration the Electoral Management Bodies open the doors of their offices, emphasizing once again the transparency in their work. They invite young voters, the media and other key stakeholders to present them achievements in organization of the electoral process, but at the same time they initiate conversation about the improvement of the processes. As the initiators of the GED underlined back in 2005, the main goals of this day are:

  • to confirm our belief in the irreversibility of democratic processes;
  • to inform the public about new achievements and challenges related to various types of voting systems;
  • to draw the attention of parliaments, governments, politicians and world leaders on the importance of their leadership role that they play in promoting a culture of democracy and high levels of voter participation;
  • to influence first-time voters and young voters to commit themselves to democratic values.

We encourage all our Members and Partners to join the celebration and send us your short reports and photos about the activities (For further reference please visit:


Global Elections Day in Hungary

Nearly thirty years ago, in the spring of 1990, the first free Hungarian elections were held following the change of regime. This institution, even though it was nominally present before, introduced a whole new set of opportunities and challenges for the society, including the voters, politicians, and professionals involved in organizing elections.

The ACEEEO has been established in 1991 in order to assist the new democracies of the Central and Eastern European region in the development of their practices for free and fair elections. Since then, with the participation of 25 Member States, ACEEEO has regularly organized conferences and seminars, where electoral experts and representatives of international organizations are given the opportunity to have an active exchange of views.

Thus, on the occasion of the GED the ACEEEO Secretariat organizes a ‘Roundtable discussion on the thirty years of the Hungarian democratic elections' to strengthen dialogue between election practitioners, scholars and election analysts.

The main aim of the roundtable is to give participants an overview of the beginning of the electoral transition, to review changes over the past thirty years, and to share thoughts on the future of the elections.

The event will be in Hungarian and open to the public, but is subject to pre-registration. For further details please contact the Secretariat of the Association.
