Transparency International Cambodia (TIC), in cooperation with the Coalition for Integrity and Social Accountability (CISA) network, was accredited by the National Election Committee (NEC) to observe the Cambodian national elections on 28 July 2013. TIC deployed 906 nonpartisan election observers to the representative sample of 409 polling stations across 24 provinces and municipalities in Cambodia to conduct a Sample-Based Observation (SBO) of the national election. SBO is an election monitoring methodology that involves the observation of a representative sample of polling stations and provides statistically meaningful information on the conduct of voting and counting. Trained local observers gathered SBO data through direct observation of the entire voting and counting processes in their assigned polling station. TIC deployed and received reports from 409 polling stations and this report is a synthesis of those findings.
