A group of Nigerian NGOs have joined together to form ReclaimNaija, an organisation which is providing a way for Nigerian citizens to report on the 2011 elections as they happen. This project is using FrontlineSMS to send and receive text message reports, and Ushahidi to visually map the election reports received.
Amidst the recent confusion of date changes surrounding the elections, providing a way for Nigerian citizens to speak out about their experiences is all the more important. Read the SMS reports being received and learn more about ReclaimNaija here:
With the Presidential elections due tomorrow, you can read more about how FrontlineSMS will be used for election monitoring in Nigeria via our guest blog post on National Geographic here:

Thanks for posting. If you are having problems getting started with FrontlineSMS we'll be happy to help in any way we can. I would suggest looking through our free user resources and our Help files, and if you continue to have problems then please could you start a new discussion in the tab forum here on the community: http://frontlinesms.ning.com/forum/, providing as much detail as possible on what the problem is so that we can help.
I hope that we can help you get up and running soon!
All the Best
