"Lack of supplies, materials and goods - an elementary cause of electoral frustration and upset voters."
Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan, former Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana and Honorary Chairman of the Board for the Canadian Organization for Democratic Elections (CODE).
Late deployment and the lack of goods, materials, and services, delivered on time to polling stations remains a constant headache and challenge for many electoral management bodies in their efforts to hold viable elections.
Poor logistics and proper materials management combined with little or no advanced planning are far too often the rule and not the exception. A lack of good inventory skills usually results in a great deal of anxiety among the electorate. In some cases, no polling materials can be the reason for polling violence and conflict.
