Bolivia's presidential and legislative elections took place on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2009. The Center was the only long-term mission in Bolivia, having had observers deployed since August 2009.
Carter Center observers Daniel Barnes and Angela Lederach deployed to Cochabamba, Bolivia, a city that has grown immensely in recent years as people have immigrated from rural areas to find employment. Barnes and Lederach stayed in Cochabamba to observe the functioning of the new biometric voters list and assess the general atmosphere during election day, and then traveled to La Paz to debrief with the Carter Center's entire delegation.
