The purpose of this Guide is to help DFID and FCO staff to decide whether to offer assistance to a government running an election, and if so what assistance to offer and when. The main context is national elections, but the guidance should also be applicable to regional and local elections. The Guide also looks at the criteria for judging how free and fair an election was, and at what further assistance and encouragement might be offered after an election, to improve the democratic process for the future.
