The ACE Electoral Knowledge Network (www.aceproject.org) — the next generation of the Administration and Cost of Elections Web site — is now live. With the launch of the Network, we make available new tools and resources for electoral practitioners around the world. The new Web site provides a ready environment for professionals to generate, share and apply knowledge on managing elections.
New features include:
- An updated ACE Encyclopaedia that includes authoritative resources on electoral administration;
- An interactive Comparative Data Section that allows you to compare data from different countries;
- An online collection of Electoral Materials that includes reports, manuals and other hands-on materials from around the world that is searchable by region, document type or topic area;
- An online newsletter (Elections Today) that provides the latest news on elections around the world;
- Access to Regional and Country-level Resources; and
- An Online Demonstration of several features that enable professionals to interact and build knowledge on elections administration.
