Abstract:

Electoral Commissions have recently begun to be an object of analysis for scholars of electoral institutions. This paper assesses the impact of various aspects of electoral management body design on electoral integrity in 24 states in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Two competing hypotheses are advanced, one emphasising the independence and professionalism of electoral commissions, and another emphasising the role of checks and balances in ensuring that such bodies conduct elections in an impartial and transparent manner. The results of the empirical analysis show the checks-and-balances argument to be better supported by the data.
