Combating Election Irregularities in the 21St Century. This work aims to promote the concept of reducing the incidence of election irregularities and requiring less intervention by the court or similar disputes resolution mechanisms. The essence of this new approach is to place much greater emphasis on drastically reducing errors through noncompliance with electoral laws and particularly rules, regulations, and directives, which result in election irregularities.
This approach may require greater clarity in drafting election rules and regulations as well as more intense monitoring and warning systems developed by EMBs to ensure a high degree of accuracy in the preparation and polling processes. This concept proceeds on the basis that, in general, election stakeholders wish to see the genuine results of the democratic process without diversions to the court or similar assistance being brought into action.
Nate Silver. He solidified his standing as the nation's foremost political forecaster with his near perfect prediction of the election. Drawing on his own groundbreaking work, Silver examines the world of prediction, investigating how we can distinguish a true signal from a universe of noisy data. Most predictions fail, often at great cost to society, because most of us have a poor understanding of probability and uncertainty. Both experts and laypeople mistake more confident predictions for more accurate ones. But overconfidence is often the reason for failure.
If our appreciation of uncertainty improves, our predictions can get better too. In keeping with his own aim to seek truth from data, Silver visits the most successful forecasters in a range of areas, from hurricanes to baseball, from the poker table to the stock market, from Capitol Hill to the NBA.
He explains and evaluates how these forecasters think and what bonds they share. What lies behind their success?
Are they good—or just lucky? What patterns have they unraveled?
And are their forecasts really right? He explores unanticipated commonalities and exposes unexpected juxtapositions. And sometimes, it is not so much how good a prediction is in an absolute sense that matters but how good it is relative to the competition. In other cases, prediction is still a very rudimentary—and dangerous—science.

Exploring Best Electoral Practices. The family of best electoral practices is growing in most democracies. It can be found in mature and new, as well as in emerging democracies, perhaps more common in the former than in the latter two categories. The goal of best electoral practices is to improve election administration and services to the electorate. Best electoral practices are showing steady upward growth in emerging democracies and the potential for continued growth is positive.
Widespread international interest in democratic elections and improved international and national election observation harmonization procedures will continue to assist in improving election administration. The use of electoral technologies and the notional entry into the age of digital democracy will undoubtedly aid and enhance best electoral practices aspirations in many emerging democracies.
