Internet observation and monitoring during elections seeks to enhance digital integrity by deterring and exposing disruptions and shutdowns, deterring and mitigating potentials for internet-based attacks on critical infrastructure and offering recommendations for improving internet governance and digital policy to build more resilient and decentralised networks.

The NetBlocks Election Pathfinder program tracks network disruptions and their likely causes and impacts before, during and after elections.

It seeks to promote public confidence as the internet’s evolution warrants and to promote safe, secure and private citizen participation through platforms that are free of censorship and unreasonable restrictions and that enshrine fundamental human rights and the rule of law.
