Guyana Decides: 2015 Elections- UNOFFICIAL NATIONAL RESULTS

Guyana Decides – 2015 National and Regional Elections – Unofficial Results

A great soul said, ‘be the change your want to see’ – information for all.

In this Age of Information there are tools and methods that can be used to deliver information faster, accurately and transparently.
This initiative is a demonstration.

The official body for elections information is GECOM. This site collates publicly available information on places of poll and results.

About this Initiative

Following the 2001 National & Regional Elections in Guyana, the Commonwealth Observer Group noted that with regards to the tabulation and results process, ‘there is no parallel transmission electronically or through texting or by any other means’ (pg 27) and recommended that ‘GECOM  should, in consultation with stakeholders, look into means by which the process can be streamlined in order to speed it up, while maintaining accuracy, transparency and accountability’ (pg 28). In trying to present results (unofficial) using an approach that is faster, accurate (photo evidence) and transparent (everyone can participate), this initiative is actually implementing an old idea. Given the ‘tension and discontent’ normally caused by GECOM’s reporting procedures in the past, it is believed that many Guyanese would welcome trying a better approach.
