SEC Promotes First Handbook for Young Voters

Inclusive approach and motivation of greater youth participation in all election cycles is the goal of the first “Manual for Young Voters” published by the State Election Commission (SEC) in cooperation with the OSCE Mission. SEC emphasizes that the manual is an initiative to establish more direct and greater two-way communication between them and young people, in order to provide easier access to persons voting for the first time in the election process, as well as proper information about their rights, opportunities and legal obligations. The Head of the OSCE Mission to Skopje, Ambassador Clemens Koja, noted that they had joined forces with SEC in order to help increase the participation of young voters.
