Over the past decade, new technologies have been playing an integral role in the organization of an increasing number of elections around the world. A number of countries have turned to a variety of technological solutions in a bid to make elections more efficient and more cost- effective, and to strengthen stakeholder trust in each stage of the electoral cycle.

This report documents a workshop on the use of technologies in electoral processes organized jointly by International IDEA and Réseau des compétences électorales francophones (Francophone Electoral Network, RECEF) in partnership with the National Electoral Commission of Cabo Verde and with the support of the International Organization of La Francophonie.

The event took place on 22–23 November in Praia, Cabo Verde, and was attended by 60 participants from over 30 countries. At the conclusion of the event, a summary of key points was approved by the participants. The summary has been adapted for publication as Chapter 5 of this report.
