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

Senegal elects on national level a head of state - the president - and a legislature. The president is elected for a seven-year term by the people (between 2001 and 2008, it was a five-year term; this was changed back to the pre-2001 seven-year term in 2008,[1] though incumbent president Macky Sall has stated he wants to have it reverted to five-year terms[2]). The National Assembly (Assemblée Nationale) has 150 members, elected for a five-year term, in multi-seat constituencies. Senegal has a multi-party system.
