2013 Governorate Council Elections

Casting a vote in the ballot box is among the most important gestures that a citizen of voting age can make in a democratic country. With provincial council elections coming up in less than 30 days, preparations are going well at the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC). The data entry is finalized and the voter lists updated. Now that the electoral campaign is in full swing, the eyes of Iraqis are turned towards elections date, on 20 April 2013.

The UN Integrated Electoral Assistance Team (IEAT), led by UNAMI, working together with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), supports the IHEC’s efforts to build a professional and sustainable electoral administration in Iraq, and to carry out its constitutional mandate with responsibility, integrity and transparency.


Until the elections date on 20 April 2012, Iraqi voters can check the status of their registration and search their polling center online, via the IHEC website:
