The initial survey in 2014 was completed by Senior Advisor, Norwegian Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation, Election and Local Democracy Unit. The update conducted in 2018 has been based on OSCE EOM Report on 2017 Elections.
“The EVA (Elektronisk Valgadministrativt System) is used to facilitate the management of election administration processes, including the registration of candidate lists, the design, printing and scanning of ballots, vote tabulation and the publication of results. It is also key to the functioning of the electronic voter register as a means to identify voters who cast ballots. Municipalities are not legally required to use the EVA. However, its many functionalities, ease of use and availability to municipalities at no cost have led to its universal adoption. Election officials at all levels were highly complimentary of the system, emphasizing that it helped to organize their work, to meet deadlines and to correctly and consistently follow procedures."
