High Tech Lebanese Elections Monitoring

The Lebanese Association for Democratic Elections (LADE) conducted a monitoring mission for the Lebanese parliamentary elections of 2018.

To manage this operation during one day with limited resources LADE created an Elections Monitoring System to allow their 375 fixed observers and 770 mobile observers who were traveling between the Lebanese rural areas to collect and report during the day more than 3,600 critical incidents and thousands of reports assessing the electoral process and environment around the polling centers.

In addition, LADE conducted a big social media marketing campaign to increase awareness about its monitoring mission and to encourage citizens to participate by downloading the monitoring app and report violations in their areas.
