The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) and the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI) are pleased to announce an election ground-sourcing project for the 2015 Haitian elections!
In past elections, election monitoring in Haiti was provided by observers from other countries, who could only go to a small sample of polling stations. Now, the power to monitor can be given back to the Haitian people to report on the progress of their own elections.
This election day, we are calling for all Haitian voters to send us information on the administration of elections – whether it by violence, irregularities, or positive accounts. We will process this information and publish it on our website so that everyone can monitor elections in Haiti as they happen. We have already started to put together information about election violence, which you can see here.
To anonymously send us information on what you see this election day, please send an SMS to 4690–0896. Please include the the name of your town and your polling station number. We encourage you to send any photos that show election results. We want to hear from you!
