Special Voting Arrangements
Special voting arrangements (SVAs) are not new. Initiatives to make elections more inclusive and accessible have existed since the earliest days of recognized democratic elections, and a steadily increasing number of nations employ a range of alternatives to conventional voting.
This Handbook seeks to present policy recommendations and good practices to help ensure that SVAs are designed and implemented to ensure electoral integrity. It also seeks to disentangle and dispel some of the myths that develop around SVAs—perhaps unavoidably considering SVAs affect who can vote and how they can vote.
