In Nigeria, elections have too often been a sour point of our democracy. Fraud, rigging, vote buying and blatant results manipulation have undermined public confidence in this important process.
Our Credible Elections Programme seeks to institutionalize transparency in election processes in Nigeria by promoting the use of new technologies as tools to improve the capacity to observe and monitor election processes. We work with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to engage citizens and other stakeholders using technology.
One of the exciting outputs of credible elections programme is the Content Aggregation System for Elections (CASE) – a pioneering technology platform to provide election stakeholders with relevant and meaningful information about the progress of elections in real time.
CASE is comprised of a social media aggregation software called Aggie, a platform for aggregating and analysing traditional observer reports (ELMO) and a mobile app for sending reports.
CASE was deployed for the 2015 elections.
