OSCE Election Observation Mission


When a decision is made to observe an election, ODIHR requests long- and short-term observers by notifying the delegations of OSCE participating States in Vienna.

The procedure for recruiting observers varies from country to country, but the process is generally co-ordinated by the respective foreign ministries. As a rule, it is the sending states that cover the costs of the observers.

For information on national procedures for recruiting observers, please contact the relevant permanent delegation to the OSCE in Vienna.
