In particular, they should: (i) Make it as convenient as possible for voters to participate in the election process; (ii) Ensure that voters adequately understand the election process; (iii) Do everything possible to provide a way to vote for people with special needs, such as blind, physically handicapped, or illiterate voters, or voters living in remote areas.
