While Algeria may not have seen protests on the scale of its regional neighbors, many Algerians are expressing their political dissent through abstention. On Twitter, the hashtag #10MaiToz was used to post various updates pertaining to police crackdowns on minor protests and voter fraud, with reports of registration under the names of dead people used to vote. Jadaliyya Maghreb Page co-editor, Robert Parks, in his piece "Arab Uprisings and the Algerian Elections: Ghosts from the Past?" analyzed the possibilities of the Algerian elections by examining recent history and the ongoing events in the Maghreb.
The following are selected tweets and images from Twitter users posting about the Algerian elections and the #10MaiToz campaign.
