A tweet in our feed today alerted us to another elections related website that came online a few days ago. The website, zimvoices.co.zw (but name GoToVote! ZW) allows visitors to selector their constituency, district and ward to get a listing of polling stations nearest to them.
Here’s a screenshot of the website:
According to the GoToVote! ZW’s about page, the website is run by Zimbabweans but is inspired by similar initiatives in Ghana,South Africa and Kenya. In fact the website acknowledge that is runs on the same code used on a Kenya website by the same name.
As for the source of the data, they say it was extracted from Excel sheets provided by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC). The Zimbabwe harmonised elections are just a week away and tools like these will definitely add a lot of convenience for voters.
If you know any other tools available out there that we haven’t reported yet, please do let us know in the comments, or send us a tip on firstname.lastname@example.org
