The citizen observatory #NiUnFradeMás (en. No More Fraud) is a participatory space that combines digital and non-digital means with the aim of strengthening the process to elect the Governor of the Federal State of Mexico. It works by engaging citizens in the oversight of the electoral process before, during and after election day. The observatory gathered 619 citizen complaints—most of them reported coercion and vote buying.
