USAID supported the national voter registration and 2009 Afghan presidential and provincial council elections process through the United Nations Development Program’s (UNDP) Enhancing Legal and Electoral Capacity for Tomorrow (ELECT I) project. The ELECT II Project builds on the achievements of ELECT I by strengthening the ability of the Afghan Government to conduct credible and transparent elections. During the current inter-election period, ELECT II will build the institutional strength and capacity of Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission (IEC). With support from ELECT II, the IEC will be able to plan and conduct credible future elections that will be accepted by the broad population in Afghanistan, as well as the international community.
