Research Chair in Electoral Studies Université de Montréal
Elections are the defining institution of modern democracy. They are an essential mechanism for ensuring government accountability, providing many citizens with their main opportunity for exercising democratic citizenship. Citizens get to pass judgement on the decisions of the past and to indicate a direction for the future. Grasping the meanings of elections is essential for understanding how representative democracies actually work.
