Seminar for the Improvement of Election Laws and Systems

The Seminar for the Improvement of Election Laws and Systems is held annually in the Autumn and aims to bring together election officials from various countries to debate and discuss topics related the election law and systems and each country. Through this discussion, the participants can review other countries’ election systems and receive feedback back on their own systems to help facilitate mutual improvement.

The program runs for a week and involves a number of sessions on topics picked by the participating election management bodies. Each delegation offers a presentation on the laws and systems related to that topic during each session before discussions begin. Also, participants are invited to observe scheduled by-elections during their visit.

The NEC provides funding and support for delegates and takes applications for the seminar from election management bodies around the world. The following election management bodies have participated in the seminar since 2010:
