What is Vote Report India?


Vote Report India (votereport.in) is a crowd-sourced election monitoring platform for the 2009 Indian general elections. Vote Report India is a non-partisan all-volunteer collaboration between software developers, designers, academics, and other professionals who are committed to bring transparency to the 2009 Indian general elections.


Vote Report India will aggregate information from two types of sources -- direct SMS, email and web reports from volunteers and all the news reports, blog posts, photos, videos and tweets related to the elections -- in one place, on an interactive map. This can be used to track the campaigns leading up to the elections, the voting experience and the irregularities on the election day itself, and the reactions to the results. The platform will give us the most complete picture of public opinion in India during the elections and also act as an important transparency initiative.


Vote Report India is powered by two path-breaking non-profit open-source projects -- Ushahidi and SwiftRiver -- and managed by eMoksha. Ushahidi is an award-winning platform that crowd-sources crisis information. SwiftRiver is a platform that makes sense of multiple sources of information in a fast-changing crisis situation. eMoksha is a non-profit organization that aims to enable stronger democracies through increased citizen awareness and engagement.
