Information on how join an EU election observation mission, including the criteria for recruitment and training requirements.
The European Commission has developed a roster (database) which accelerates the selection of EU election observers and makes it more transparent, impartial and uniform. All candidates (core team and observers) interested in participating in an EOM have to register their candidature in the election roster.
Criteria for recruitment
This page outlines the minimum requirements each candidate must meet to become an EU election observer.
Training for observers is organised by their home countries (mainly for short-term observers) and by Commission services with the support of NEEDS (Network for Enhanced Electoral and Democracy Support).
