Abstract

Together with the other structural components of democracy: respect for fundamental rights and freedoms, separation of powers within the state, rule of majority and protection of minorities etc, the electoral law represents the source and the guarantee of a relevant component for democracy - free association - political pluralism - free, periodic and correct elections.

During more than 150 years, the electoral legislation has experienced a real dynamic on the one hand determined by the national and international political context, the form of government and, on the other hand, by the political regime.

This paper aims at analyzing the evolution of the main electoral regulations, regulations that have marked the evolution and involution of the Romanian democratization process, focusing on the latest regulation, law no 208/2015 with subsequent amendments which provides a new electoral option - the postal voting.

Keywords: electoral law, democracy, vote, postal voting
