In case you missed “Stories from 100 Elections” at The Carter Center on Dec. 2, 2015, an archived webcast of this Conversations at The Carter Center event can be viewed below.
Over the years, Carter Center staff have watched jubilant voters cast their first ballots; met with dictators who were sure they would be re-elected, but lost; and watched election officials stay up all night counting ballots. Hear humorous and moving tales from the front lines of emerging democracies.
– David Carroll, director of the Carter Center’s Democracy Program, who has participated in nearly half of the Center’s election missions, including the recent 101st in Myanmar.
– Jennie Lincoln, director of the Center’s Americas Program, who was part of the Center’s first and second missions in Panama and Nicaragua, and also served as a short-term observer in the 100th election mission in Guyana.
– Sarah Johnson, an associate director in the Center’s Democracy Program, who has overseen numerous election observation missions, including in Sudan and Tunisia.
