Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia invites to a presentation on

Elections and Electoral Turnout in Armenia

to be delivered by Julya Sahakyan (CRRC-Armenia Junior Fellow)

The research paper studied the factors that are associated with the perception of fair elections, and how it affects the decision to vote in Armenia. The data from the CRRC Caucasus Barometer surveys was analyzed by Spearman test, Binomial and Chi square hypothesis testing tools. The analyses show thatthe main factor which shapes perception towards elections is experience of unfair elections that people face.In the scope of the research it was also identified that even though people are distrustful towards the elections, they go to vote.This phenomenon is mainly related with the fact that people are interested in the politics and consider the voting important for a good citizen.


Julya Sahakyan holds a BA from the faculty of Oriental studies of the Yerevan State University, and an MA degree from the School of Political Science and International Affairs of the American University of Armenia. Her research interests include international relations, public policy, and others.
