Election Transparency Initiative

Citizen Observer Portal

Transparency is the key to deterring fraud and ensuring free and fair elections for all voters. If you are unable to work as a formal poll watcher or poll worker, you can still contribute to election transparency by using this guide, and the associated forms linked below.
