COUNT FOR DEMOCRACY ON JUNE 9TH AT THE MUNICIPAL, MINORITY AND EUROPEAN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS!

Since the 1990s, governments and political leaders have done very little to get Hungarian citizens to understand the importance of their civic duty and shared responsibility that forms the basis of any functioning democracy. Let’s protect the integrity of the June 9th elections together!

Our nonpartisan civil organization, Unhack Democracy launched the Count for democracy! campaign to inform every Hungarian citizen about what we can do together to protect the integrity of our elections.

SELECT THE ELECTION & SEARCH FOR THE ORGANISATION OR CANDIDATE YOU WANT TO BE DELEGATED BY!

Only those organisations or candidates can delegate you, who are running at these elections. Apply by May 31st 4 PM CET. Please see the Hungarian language version for more information.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT THAT YOU ARE A WELL-TRAINED POLL-WORKER AND INFORMED VOTER?

It’s the first time Hungary will hold three elections on one day: local municipal elections, local minority elections and European parliamentary elections. In certain towns and districts at the municipal elections a very close race is expected.

Curious about how your ballots turn into electoral mandates? Watch Political Capital’s video with English subtitles.

Would you like to ensure the integrity of the elections outside of the polling stations?

Join the team of Tiszta Szavazás NGO! Despite ODIHR’s recommendations and Hungary’s obligations towards OSCE, the law has not allowed independent civil observation in the elections since the democratic transition of the 1990s. As a result, there is no civil oversight in the polling stations. But if you as a Hungarian citizen would like to observe the elections on the streets, you can do so with Tisztaszavazas.hu.

What to do if you notice any instance of violation of the law during the campaign or on the day of the elections, in or outside the polling station?

Please contact TASZ (HCLU), who can help you to file your complaint!

VIDEO CAMPAIGN

In our Count for democracy! video campaign we asked artists to help us deliver our message on how you as active citizens can better protect the integrity of the elections. Based on our research and director Viktor Bodó, the videos highlight the impact of polling day corruption, the co-dependent system and the heroic role well-trained poll workers’ play in defending democracy.

*We originally launched the campaign and created the videos in 2022 for the Hungarian parliamentary elections. Please see the Hungarian language version for more info.

THANK YOU!

A special thanks to all the actors, who joined our cause and those professionals who contributed to this campaign with their volunteer work. Without our extended team’s heroic efforts we couldn’t have done this.
Please donate to help us reach as many people as possible!
