The Council of Europe (CoE) in cooperation with the Centre for Continuous Electoral Training and the Promo-LEX Association organised, over 5 - 13 May 2022, offline information campaign and an online electoral school for young people from those 10 localities where new local elections will be held on 29 May 2022. The aim was to encourage the participation of young people, particularly first-time voters, in electoral processes and get them familiarised with good electoral practices.
To further make a difference in the longer term, it was essential that young people were engaged in formal electoral processes and have a say in formulating today’s and tomorrow’s public agenda.
An average of 60 young people, mostly first-time voters, were involved in information and training activities with regard to electoral processes, interactive debates on the matter of whether voting should be compulsory, voting simulation activities etc.
This activity was implemented and funded by the Council of Europe Project Improving Electoral Practice in the Republic of Moldova, Phase II.
