2014 marks the start of the election cycle in Latin America that will continue until 2015. This means that many Civil Society organizations are working towards more transparent, accessible and open elections in their countries. DATA and the ABRE LATAM community wants to help them, by compiling a comprehensive map of tools and resources that can be used for this objective.

The workshop would ask for people from around the world to identify tools and the output would be crowdsourced global toolbox for elections.

This year, Google are sponsoring this session and we’re grateful to them for helping to host this conversation. For more details about programme sponsors see our Sponsors page.
