The Election Commission of India is organizing an International Virtual Election Visitors Programme 2020 (IEVP) for foreign Election Management Bodies (EMBs)/Organisations from 05-07 Nov 2020, in the context of the ongoing Bihar Legislative Assembly Elections.

Bihar has an electorate of over 72 million, one of the largest in the world to vote so far amid the COVID19 pandemic. This provides us with an opportunity to share our best practices and experience of the conduct of our poll process during the pandemic period.  

Delegates from over 40 countries across the world including  Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malawi, Maldives, Moldova, Mongolia, Mauritius, Nepal, Philippines, Suriname,  Trinidad and Tobago,  Ukraine,  Uzbekistan and Zambia etc.  and 3 international organizations (viz.

The Programme for IEVP 2020 comprises an online briefing session on 05 Nov. 2020 which would provide to the participants an overview of the large canvas of Indian electoral process, the new initiatives taken by ECI on voter facilitation, transparency and accessibility of electoral system;  and ECI’s response to  the changing needs of training and capacity building. The keynote address at the inaugural session will be delivered by Chief Election Commissioner Shri Sunil Arora. The session shall also be addressed by Election Commissioners Shri Rajiv Kumar and Shri Sushil Chandra. 

On the second day, 06 Nov 2020, the Programme will provide a unique overview of the Commission’s flagship programme for voter awareness – SVEEP (Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation).
