Series II: Independent Electoral Commission, 1993-1994

This series documents the work of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in overseeing the 1994 election in South Africa. The IEC was a statutory body consisting of 11 South Africans and 5 others. Gay McDougall served on the Commission as the only United States representative. Materials relating to the work of the communications, logistics, administration and monitoring units are included. The IEC met frequently, sometimes daily, and therefore the agendas, minutes, and accompanying documents from the meeting (for example, reports) provide a chronological look at the IEC’s day to day work leading up to the election. There are also sample ballots and posters.
