GIJN’s Elections Guide for Investigative Reporters — Revised for 2024

Global elections in the year ahead — including presidential, legislative, and regional polls in at least 60 countries — will affect more citizens than in any previous year, and will likely reset humanity’s liberty compass for years ahead. While election rules and conditions are unique in every country, this GIJN reporting guide, updated and revised for 2024, is designed to offer a broad array of tools, techniques, and resources — beyond the primary local sources you find — to help watchdog reporters dig into almost any campaign or election.

This guide was written and revised by GIJN senior staff reporter Rowan Philp and edited by Nikolia Apostolou, Reed Richardson, and Laura Dixon. Illustrations are by Marcelle Louw.
