On November 15, 2016, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) organized pilot mock elections in three high schools in Haiti. The mock election exercise was led by IFES Civic Engagement Agents (CEA), who briefed participants on the electoral process in Haiti, and the main steps of the voting process. Immediately afterwards, students were asked to participate in a mock election exercise, where they were given the opportunity to act as poll workers or voters. Participants voted using a ballot, which is in Haitian Creole and has pictures, containing seven democratic and civic values. Students were asked to vote for the value they considered to be the most important. The ballot included images of persons with disabilities engaging in civic life.
