Monitoring real-time election data for Burkina FasoBy CODEL
Project URL: www.burkinavote.com
This platform used both mobile phone and online mapping tools to enable the collection of real-time election-monitoring data, promoting free and fair elections and the right to political participation.
Using parallel vote tabulation (PVT), a representative sample-based election observation statistical methodology, the app enabled a representative number of election observers, in different areas of the country, to text in information relating to election conditions, for example, if the polling station was opened on time, instances of voter intimidation etc.
It was created by Project CODEL and financed by the EU, among other organisations. It provided a concise snapshot of the 2015 election and how it could be improved.
