Media in National Elections (MiNE)

This project aims to deepen democratic engagement in elections through professional reporting, observing elections, strategic collaborations, and providing platforms for in-depth dialogue. We bring accountability to the electoral process by interrogating electoral finances, electoral offences, voter suppression and intimidation and youth participation amongst other themes.

The MiNE project started effectively during the Anambra 2017 governorship election, however, election observation has been part of our activities since 2015 through the Premium Times Election Centre platform.

So far, we have observed 3 National Elections, and 8 Sub-National elections within Nigeria, deploying over 500 Observers.
