Launch of the Internet project ELECTUA.ORG to monitor elections
September 19, 2012, Kyiv - "Internews-Ukraine" International Public Organization presented new online resource www.electua.org to monitor elections. Now the Ukrainian Internet keeps an eye on fair elections, and each citizen can get involved in control and monitoring of Parliamentary Elections 2012.
"New resource will allow journalists, public figures and all citizens to participate in elections monitoring. We want to draw attention to the importance of transparent, open and fair will declaration process. It is no use shuffling off the responsibility for the electoral process on someone ─ every citizen of Ukraine should get involved!"- Konstantyn Kvurt, Chairman of "Internews Ukraine" IPO, pointed out.
“Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of a democracy. The ELECTUA.ORG crowdsourcing portal will collect and verify violations during the electoral process. What makes this project unique is that it will rely on Ukrainian citizens, public activists and journalists to feed their eyewitness information into the website,” said Wayne Sharpe, Director of the Ukraine Media Project (U-Media) of Internews Network. “ Moderators will verify the reports, to provide an accurate and up-to-date picture of the 2012 Parliamentary elections,” Sharpe added.
The new initiative of "Internews Ukraine" is apolitical and designed to assert the interests of all voters. The ELECTUA.ORG web-page rapidly visualizes violations of election legislation during the election campaign and on the day of elections. The Internet resource, developed with the support of U.S. and Mexico international experts, is open to anyone, who has an opportunity and is eager to report violations. The zest of the platform is an interactive map that displays two layers of reports: 1-received and under moderation; 2-checked and verified.
At any time citizens, media representatives and community activists can report violations of election legislation at www.electua.org, also via Facebook social network http://www.facebook.com/ElectUA and SMS. In the project framework there is an info line where you can get advice regarding the web page and report violation.
The advantage of the ELECTUA.ORG platform is "smart" crowdsoursing, accurate and transparent verification system of received information. Web-site users can send messages about violations, at the same time there is an opportunity to monitor the electoral process taking into account violations that occur. A team of moderators will be working on reports verification. Users can also browse pages with generalized statistics on violations quantity and their types. All recorded data on violations can be used by international experts, other human rights protectors and legal organizations as the basis for 2012 elections monitoring and analysis.
