Abstract


The research examines the perception of young
voters regarding the quality of the
implementation the 2014 election. There are six
indicators to measure the integrity: 1) the
election law, 2) the electoral procedure, 3) the
voter registration, 4) the political party and its
candidate registration, 5) the role of mass
media, and 5) the candidate campaign. The
research findings revealed that, in general,
young voters have an adequate perception
concerning the electoral integrity. More
specifically, the good perception is only to two
things namely political party and its candidate
registration and the electoral procedure. The
rest is adequate perception. In addition, the
research portrayed that young people have
highest trust merely to the Corruption
Eradication Commision (KPK). On the other
hand, they have lowest trust into two
institutions: political party and parliament.
Key words: Young voters, perception, the 2014
