People’s Voter Education Network (JPPR) is a network of 38 institutions consisting of social organizations under Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), Muhammadiyah, NGOs, educational institutions, interfaith institutions, student institutions, and radio channels. Members of JPPR work at the national and provincial level, Regency/City, District, up to Village.
The vision of JPPR is to realize an Indonesian society that is aware, knowledgeable, and active in building people’s sovereignty. Since its founding in 1998, JPPR has actively promoted democratic education for Indonesian people, mainly by observing the conduct of General and local elections in Indonesia.
In the 1999 Legislative Elections, JPPR gave voter education to 117,000 volunteers throughout Indonesia. JPPR also monitored the 2004 Legislative Election and carried out voter education activities. From 2007-2008, JPPR carried out monitoring missions for local elections in various provinces and districts. For the 2009 election, JPPR mobilized around 3,500 volunteers to serve as monitors. In 2010, JPPR had monitored elections in 10 regions across Indonesia with more than 3,000 volunteers. JPPR has conducted monitoring missions in areas such as Bandar Lampung, Blitar, Cianjur, Cilacap and Ketapang.
From 2011-2012, JPPR has also been involved in monitoring the accessibility of 5 local elections in Indonesia: Mamuju, Tangerang Selatan, Bangka Belitung, Jogjakarta and Jakarta, as part of the AGENDA partnership. They have also developed an accessible election monitoring checklist, which was used in the observations.
