Elections in Guyana gives information on election and election results in Guyana.

Guyana elects on national level a unicameral legislature (the National Assembly).The National Assembly has 65 members. Since 2001 the makeup of the National Assembly is as follows- 25 members are elected via proportional representation from 10 Geographic Constituencies and 40 members are chosen also on the basis of proportional representation from National lists named by the political parties. Prior to 2001 53 members were elected for a five-year term by proportional representation and 12 members delegated by local government councils. The President is elected for a five-year term on the basis of the parliamentary elections. Guyana has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party.

The Guyana Elections Commission is responsible for the administration and conduct of elections in Guyana. The last General Elections in Guyana were held on November 28, 2011.
