Election Cycle Groups

Table of ContentsUseful Links

Purpose

The purpose of the Election Cycle Groups is to focus the development of standards around the most stable aspect of elections possible: the Election Process.

The overall election process can be understood as an overall series of steps or functions that must take place in each essential phase of the overall election itself.

These phases include:

  1. Pre-Election Processes and Functions: actions that must take place before a given election
  2. Election Processes and Functions: that which must take place during a given election, and
  3. Post-Election Processes and Functions: all that must take place after a given election.

Working Groups

Specific working groups have been established for the purpose of addressing each of these phases.

They include:

  1. Pre-Election Public Working Group
  2. Election Public Working Group
  3. Post-Election Public Working Group
