Stakeholders

Voters are the single most important stakeholders in any multi-party democratic system, and EISA works with election management bodies and civil society bodies to coordinate, train and equip trainers to supply voters with accurate, up to date, professional and impartial voter and civic education. This includes assistance in the development of training manuals and materials, in trainer deployment, and in the coordination of effort to ensure maximum population coverage.
