Uchaguzi 2017: Volunteer Sign Up
The Uchaguzi Project has come together to help Kenya have a free, fair, peaceful and credible 2017 general election by increasing transparency and accountability through active citizen participation in the electoral cycle. For purposes of the Uchaguzi Project the electoral process is perceived as a permanent and recurrent cycle, in which every stage, and not just the Election Day, counts.

We've set up the following digital response teams to help process incoming information.

1. Structuring: Responsible for converting posts from SMS, Email and Twitter into structure of existing surveys.
2. Media Monitoring: Responsible for monitoring citizen reports via different social media streams, i.e twitter, facebook, blogs, in turn, creating posts from them.
3. Translation: Responsible for translation of posts from local languages to English. They will work closely with the media monitoring and structuring teams
4. Geolocation: Responsible for reviewing all posts for location information, and mapping posts that require geolocation. They will work closely with the media monitoring and structuring teams
5. Publishing: Responsible for reviewing( ensuring correct structure and categorization) and publishing posts
6. Verification: Responsible for verification of posts. They will work to corroborate incoming posts using other existing citizen reports and mainstream media
7. Analysis and Research: Responsible for analysing data within the platform, and providing situation room reports in the form of data visualisation, and pdfs
8. Technology: Responsible for maintenance of https://uchaguzi.or.ke for the duration of election monitoring.

These teams will be activated during the election period and will work through 4th to 12th August, 2017
