Present in Côte d'Ivoire since 2008, EISA opened its first field office there as part of the implementation of a support program for citizen election observation with the Ivorian Civil Society Convention (CSCI). In 2010, EISA worked with CSCI on a joint voter registration mission and in 2014 on a joint pre-election needs assessment mission in Abidjan.

In collaboration with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), EISA conducted a training of trainers for the observation of political party elections in September 2015, in view of the 2015 presidential election, and in September 2016, in view of of the 2016 legislative elections.

In June 2020 a cooperative agreement with USAID was signed, which marked the opening of the country office specifically for the implementation of a program to assess the integrity of the 2020 presidential and legislative elections in Côte d'Ivoire through the deployment of an international Election Observation Mission (EOM) in partnership with the Carter Center.
