In this EUDO CITIZENSHIP Comparative Report, the author explores the links between this situation and the most important international features of electoral law: out-of-country voting; voting by foreigners; international election observation; transnational elections. After examining how international hard and soft law addresses these issues, he sustains the paradox that out-of-country voting is the only one directly linked to the information society, since it needs easy access to information without borders, whereas voting by foreigners is still based on territory, and while international election observation results from democratisation and transnational elections from supranational integration.
