Welcome to the rebooted WikiProject Elections and Referendums, a WikiProject re-established in 2009 to standardize and improve upon Wikipedia's coverage on elections.

Our userbox is {{User E&R}} and our talk page banner is {{WikiProject Elections and Referendums}}. Most importantly, be sure to check out the to-do box below.


The scope of the project is the coverage of elections and referendums anywhere in the world, from a national level to a local level.

A comprehensive entry with the most recent results on national level worldwide can be found at the List of election results by country (note: a long document). An overview of past election results can be found at Elections in 2005, Elections in 2006, etc. A list of upcoming elections can be found at Upcoming elections section of the Electoral calendar. Please help us keep these lists up to date!
