Ushahidi to report anomalies on political elections

I would like to use Ushahidi to report anomalies on political elections in my Estate.
Here in Veracruz we have 212 municipalities and the main problems during electoral campaigns and on the election day are:

ballot box disturbance
violation on the norm of secret vote
Results falsification
Fake Ids to vote
Vote buying

among others

I'm sure that using this tool to inform about the irregularities will help authorities to be aware and do something about it

How would you tell if someone had a fake ID, and who would be monitoring in each of the 200+ municipalities?

Each municipality has its own political partie representative looking after the polls, deployed all over the municipalities and when the people vote there are citizen checking every id againts their files, so any citizen or representative can denunciate any irregularity

Thank you for sharing your pro-active ideas of 'citizen journalism' and inspiring me in particular and all of us in general how technology-driven "Ushahidi" network can build urban resilience to protect the rights of ordinary citizens in exercising their franchise. +1 for courage to make such a personal intervention to instill "functional" democracy through free and fair elections in your own area.

This is wonderful. democracies all over the world need this type of program!

Great idea. This could mobilize inspectors to reach spots where fraud was happening before the evidence disappeared. Ushahidi shines a light!

Well done! The light of Ushahidi can only shine where it is 'turned on'. The politics of voting is so important.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
