    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    In this article, three contemporary challenges - the political environment, the professional election administrative competency, and the legitimacy of electoral institutions - are explored and linked to the election day observation experience, to stimulate discussion and thinking on its implications for election observation. This article explores the complex trust and political dynamics that form the local context of an election and suggests one way forward - to better incorporate qualitative research techniques into election observation methodology.
