Project Description

For Uganda’s 2011 general election, DI worked with researchers from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) to measure the effect of election observation and study voter perceptions of violence and intimidation, voter registration, and election fraud. The DI-UCSD team compiled and analyzed results from our research in Uganda to enable us to better assess the effectiveness of election observers and to understand voter attitudes. The findings informed DI’s efforts to improve international election observation, including through advocacy of greater adherence to established standards and adoption of new technologies and approaches.
