During Kenya’s 2013 General Election, Nation Media Group and Circle Digital created a live Elections Reporting and Tracking System (ERTS).

The ERTS was tremendously successful by several measures: 1.6 million pageviews, a peak of 2,500 simultaneous users, traffic from over 100 countries, heavy mobile usage within Kenya and an average visit duration of seven minutes.

In this iHub presentation, they share their experience on working across design and technological challenges, to deliver a crucial public service during Kenya’s most complicated election.
