[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Ok great. We have two ways to get set up with Ushahidi
Install the platform code base on your own servers. You can do so by downloading the code off our github page. I believe this is what you've been trying and have been having trouble with?
Make use of our cloud based service. We have different plans to choose from available here: https://www.ushahidi.com/plans . However, we offer licenses grassroots organizations that are aligned with Ushahidi's mission and can demonstrate a yearly operating budget of less than $250k USD per year. This is the link that my colleague David shared with you here: https://www.ushahidi.com/plans/apply-for-free
I hope this is helpful?
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Your election project sounds like it would be eligible
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] The platform is free, if you're hosting on your own servers. When hosted on our servers, you choose a plan that suits your needs at a fee. However, with a grassroots license, you would not pay. All you need to do is fill in an application.
