The Democracy Program at The Carter Center works globally to support democratic elections and strengthen participatory democracy, consistent with human rights.

Within the efforts to contribute to electoral reform, is the establishment of a code of conduct in key states and at the national level. In 2020, The Carter Center developed and released a Code of Conduct for the candidates that promoted commonsense expectations about behavior during the campaign. Codes of Conduct are frequently used internationally to promote calm and reduce tensions during a campaign. The Democracy Program believes such codes could be used for a similar role here in the U.S., providing an avenue to facilitate discussion and debate about shared democratic values. The Carter Center has worked with partners to develop a revised Code of Conduct in advance of the 2022 elections that can be adopted by candidates, committing themselves to upholding democratic standards in the electoral process.
The Carter Center is seeking two consultant Network Coordinators to work as part of an established team on efforts aimed at the adoption and implementation of an electoral code of conduct at the state or national level.
