From November 24 to December 23 the exhibition ”The Ballot. A simple piece of paper or an instrument of power?" will be on display in Daugavpils, at Daugavpils Regional and Art Museum. The exhibition is a meeting point to learn about and discuss the development of democracy seen through this small but highly significant artifact. Why do the ballot papers look the way they do? How come the ballots are so different between similar countries? Can the ballot affect the preference of the voter? How do the ballots represent political trends and events over time?
This exhibition material encourages the study of the development of our democracies, and its content is designed in such a way that it is exciting for a wide audience - both students, professionals and every voter.
