The project envisages the introduction of the first Online Vote-O-Meter for the 2020 Parliamentary Elections in Georgia.

This voting advice application will help to put informed discussions at the heart of the 2020 elections and the preceding campaign, making Georgia a more democratic and transparent society.

All political parties running in the election will be invited to give their opinion on a set of political statements.

Voters will then be able to answer the same statements for themselves. The underlying principle is simple. A series of questions is presented to the voter. The user then can “agree”, “disagree” or “agree halfway” on a given set of statements. The online system then works out the user's political proximity to the political parties. The result will help Georgian voters to find out which party they could vote for.

The project will be supported by a series of TV appearances, social media outlets and public debates.

Fund Sukhumi will be assisted by three partners from the Visegrad countries:

  1. Fundacja Feminoteka from Warsaw, PL -
  2. Gender Studies from Prague, CZ -
  3. The Department of Sociology of the Trnava University, SK -

The partners will help with designing an advocacy and online campaign strategy and the scientific background of the project.

Fund Sukhumi is a women-led NGO from Kutaisi, Georgia. The organization works towards a peaceful democratic society in Georgia and supports women-led activities, making women sustainable actors of peace.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
