The Sudanese Elections: How to follow developments

Martha Heinemann Bixby posts over at Inside the Beltway & Outside the Ordinary:

Today marked the start of the Sudanese elections.  Voting is scheduled to run from April 11-13, with results expected to be announced on the 18th.

The BBC and Reuters have good run-downs of the complexities of these elections, including the logistical and political challenges surrounding them and a helpful Q&A.

To stay up-to-date on elections developments:

1) sign up for Save Darfur’s regular elections alerts at http://action.savedarfur.org/campaign/electionalerts

2) follow developments on Twitter – through our Twitter list on the elections or by following and using the hashtag #sudanelections [I’d also add in here my personal Twitter list on the elections: http://twitter.com/martha_jean/sudan-elections]

3) watch www.sudanvotemonitor.com, a project led by the Sudan Institute for Research and Policy (SIRP) , in collaboration with Sudanese Civil Society Organizations (CSO), and supported by eMoksha.org and Ushahidi.com (technical partners)

4) read the blogs & web publications: the Enough Project’s Enough Said, with updates from Maggie Fick in South Sudan; Sudan365 with news and events from around the world; the African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies; The Sudan Tribune; Change.org’s Human Rights blog.

Many thanks to Martha for this useful information. It will be very interesting to follow developments and observe the reactions of the international community.
