Mobile Friendly Real-time Provisional Results IEBC feed for All Levels of Government

The design & developer tag team (JeffMaina & ckithika ) from the iHub, here at the Uchaguzi Situation room have been putting together a simple way to visualize the provisional results coming from the IEBC API.

One problem we noticed with the other real-time feeds was that we couldn’t easily find the Governor, Senator, MP and Women’s Rep results for each county and ward. Ours has all that, and it is also responsive design, meaning that it’s equally well-viewed on mobiles, tablets and big monitors.

Quick Note: We’re doing real-time design and dev work on this, so don’t be surprised when things change. There should be some bar charts up soon, as well as making it easier to find your county and then all the ward data within that county. [update: case-in-point is that we had a bug with the MP data, so took that out til it's been fixed.]

"We've pulled data from the IEBC API to create a way of tabulating the results on web, which is also Mobile and Tablet friendly. All the posts, from Presidential to Women Rep are shown here," Charles Kithika, Web Dev volunteering at Uchaguzi Situation Room.
