Golos Impact Evaluation
February 01, 2013
Golos is a leading Russian nongovernmental organization (NGO) that aims to defend the rights of voters by observing elections in a range of regions throughout Russia. Golos’s main objective is to provide trustworthy information about Russian elections to voters, political parties, election commissions, other NGOs, media outlets, and the domestic and international community.
Using a combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques, including elite interviews, analysis of internet and social media networks, election forensics, and online surveys, Democracy International valuated Golos’s role in influencing the quality of elections at the systemic and polling station levels and communicating its message to key constituencies.
