BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

Visible Polls is a platform that curates election data across Africa. With the huge challenge faced in finding accurate and easily accessible data regarding elections on the continent, Visible Polls is built to democratize this data, freeing it from the almost always hard to process document formats.

The platform allows us to create a snapshot of any African election – capturing the candidates, election promises, news, mapped incidents of election malpractices and of course the election results.

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
