Training Women Candidates & Voters for the 2018 Parliamentary Elections
As part of a broader Get-Out-the-Vote voter education campaign, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) - the Lebanese Elections Assistance Project (LEAP), in partnership with the “Lebanese Association for Democratic Elections” (LADE), conducted six info sessions in five universities between 5 and 24 April.
The overall objective of the awareness sessions was to increase young people’s motivation and preparedness to participate constructively in elections.
More than 200 students, aged between 19 and 26, participated in the sessions where LEAP team provided information on the aspects of the electoral cycle, including the new electoral law, the electoral calendar, the required documents to vote for elections, details on the preprinted ballot papers and election observation.
