Election Day Portal
This will join the feeds from the three organizations, while also giving you a map with region-specific information. The website has been designed by TI. NDI provided critical coordination, as well as access to survey results. CRRC is providing the maps for the effort. We work with GeoCommons to provide the data on the maps. Below a snapshot of a pre-election complaint.
Note that the maps take time to load. They are not as fast and snazzy as Flash-based maps would be, since they get populated by data that is continuously updated, during the election day and after. Here the technology is still catching up -- we are also using this as an exercise to learn how best to make mapped information available over the Internet.
On CRRC's side, David Sichinava, our GIS and Database Analyst, and Jonne Catshoek, our Crowdsourcing Project Manager, were the ones who made this happen. This work has been supported generously by the Open Society Foundation Georgia.

The long-fought-over electoral reform was a compromise which represents two steps forward after three steps had been taken back.
In times of crisis, support for governments often rises in what is known as a rallying around the flag effect. The COVID-19 crisis in Georgia has been no exception.
Data from around the world has shown rallying around the flag effects in many countries during the pandemic, with a few exceptions. Georgia has followed this broader pattern, with performance ratings tripling for many actors and institutions between November/December 2019 and May 2020.
