China: Democracy From the Bottom Up

More than 600,000 villages across China are participating in a national movement toward meaningful democracy--democracy from the bottom up--in a communist nation of 1.3 billion people. For more than a decade, at the invitation of the Chinese government, The Carter Center has aided this effort by helping to standardize election practices among villages and by promoting good governance and citizen participation. In this audio slideshow, join voters in Hetao as they elect local officials in a process typical of village elections across China.
