The project includes a series of analytical articles at www.infovolby.sk (website informing on current election); commentaries, articles, interviews, and online discussions published in Slovak media (Sme, Pravda, Hospodárske noviny, Plus 1 deň, Nový čas, Új Szó, Trend, SITA, TASR, SRo, topky.sk) as well as foreign media (from Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Ukraine, Italy) and participation of IVO experts in the TV debates organized by the MEMO 98 association. Furthermore, research results were utilized for the international workshop on Visegrad (V4) countries elections which was organized by IVO in July 2010 in Bratislava.
