Elections in Africa

Collected by: University of Michigan Library

Archived since: Feb, 2020

Description:

This collection captures online activities associated with electioneering in Africa. Web accounts associated with elections in Africa provide a rich platform for capturing events as they occur in their regions. The various sources ranging from professional journalism to freelance authorship and from partisan political parties to activism make the medium a rich resource. Nonetheless, much of Web activities emerge in the periods preceding elections and fizzle out or disappear altogether after elections. This archive attempts to maintain a record of these momentous activities across a continent that is undergoing extraordinary changes nearly a century after the wave of independence swept across the nations. Since the dawn of independence in the middle of the twentieth century, African countries have gone through varying degrees of democratic freedom ranging from single-party rules to military takeovers, rapid successions, and failed states. This archive is dedicated to capturing these events as they unfold.
