Election Violence Tracker

Report and share Violence Incidence in Nigeria directly on this platform.

"EVT uses the Independent Electoral Commission’s polling unit location data to track and map locations of electoral violence in Nigeria; and OpenStreetMap to geolocate each polling unit address and enable user identification to verify report locations. Reports, which can include photos or videos, are visualised on a map and the data collected is openly available for download and export. The tool has already seen use. During the Nigerian elections on 25 February, 59 cases of violence were reported via the EVT. The tool will be deployed again for the State and Governorship elections in March. PolicyLab Africa plan to continue to make improvements and hope to expand deployment to other countries to make more data available on electoral violence across Africa. All code and documentation is open and available on the PolicyLab Africa GitHub repository for other organisations to use and adapt." - mySociety TICTeC Labs blog
