How It Works
Nigeria’s elections have a history of manipulation and unfortunately, voters are also disconnected from the process beyond voting in itself. We believe that elections need to reflect the aggregate citizen preferences to be effective. ReVoDa, as part of EiE Nigeria’s RSVP campaign, connects voters to the entire process and makes it fun – especially for young voters who’re avid technology users. You can use the ReVoDa Mobile App or connect with us via regular SMS.
With ReVoDa, EiENigeria seeks to potentially turn the 100 million+ Nigerians with mobile phones, 45 million+ with internet access and 4.6 million+ on Facebook into informal election observers. ReVoDa allows voters to report as independent citizen observers from their respective Polling Units across Nigeria, having registered to map their mobile number, name and polling unit number to specific locations. It also allows EiE Nigeria to send relevant information about the electoral process to registered users.
Using ReVoDa Mobile is easy, and it starts with the download which you can do here. Choose the version you prefer between ReVoDa Lite (for regular phones) and ReVoDa Smart (for smart phones), install on your device and then create a profile.
To create a profile, enter your details (Polling Unit Code and Name) and you will be registered on the EnoughIsEnough Nigeria network. Please note that your mobile device has to be registered before it can be used for election reporting. This will only cost you one SMS message.
Make Report: After registration of your mobile device, this menu option becomes active. To file a report, choose the 'Election Type' field (this is mandatory), select any other relevant election field(s) and click the 'Send' button to send the data. This will cost you an SMS message.
Contact EIE Nigeria: Select this menu option to contact EnoughIsEnough Nigeria's hotlines through the [Call] or [Call Hotline] submenu or browse to their website via the [Browse] or [Open URL] submenu. If you're using a Blackberry device, click the menu button to activate the contact options.
Tell-A-Friend: Use this to inform your friends about this app for election reporting so that they can download and use it. This will cost you an SMS message.
Party Acronyms: View the complete list of Political Parties and their acronym. Use this list for reference on party acronyms when inputing party results in the reporting section. When updating result use this format: party=count e.g ac=45 pdp=9 anpp=7 (don't forget to put a space between the results).
