Election Management & Monitoring (EMM)

Election Management & Monitoring, em2 or EMSQUARE uses GIS and the mobile app platforms to effectively harness the available communication facilities and the networking technology to further improve the reliability, accuracy of the electoral process.  Monitoring of the polling stations and the election process was earlier dependent on conventional communication media like fax, telephone and police wireless and in-person visits.

em2 aims at an effective communication plan and to collect poll-day information from the polling stations on strategic parameters. The communication network could be utlized to pin point the polling stations where corrective measures are required to conduct a free and fair election.

em2 intends to help the Chief Electoral Office at every statge of the election process to manage the elections effectively.

em2 has primarily two major modules, PRE-ELECTIONS and ELECTION DAY.
