e-voting > Devote your day to democracy

UPDATE! Details on how to register to become an accredited ORG election observer are now online. As you can see from the map opposite, we have 3 successful e-voting observation teams. But we need more volunteers, especially in Sheffield and South Bucks.

We need you to monitor e-voting pilots in your local area.

Elections for the Scottish and Welsh assemblies, and most local authorities in England, are set to take place on Thursday, 3 May.

The Department for Constitutional Affairs has announced pilots in the following local authorities:

E-voting - Rushmoor, Sheffield, Shrewsbury & Atcham, South Bucks and Swindon E-counting - Bedford, Breckland, Dover, South Bucks, Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Warwick District Council

Are you willing and able to help us monitor the use of e-voting and e-counting technologies in one of these local authorities? We have created a pledge on PledgeBank to encourage groups of two or more election monitors to register for each local authority affected. Just visit http://www.pledgebank.com/electionwatch07 to sign up.

This is a vital role, as we need bodies on the ground to inform us about irregularities, machine (and human!) error and even fraudulent activities relating to the trialling of electronic voting mechanisms.
