World Wide Elections - 2019


In 2019, more people will vote than ever before. Nearly two billion voters in more than 50 countries around the world will head to the polls this year to elect their leaders. Some of the biggest elections include India - the worlds largest democracy with 800 million eligible voters, Indonesia - 187 million registered voters and Nigeria - 84 million registered voters.

SCOPE NOTE :
this resource covers presidential and legislative elections in about 300 polities:

  • 200 [or so] sovereign states
  • 30 [or so] non-recognized para-states
  • 50 [or so] non-self governing territories
  • 29 union states in India [some of which are awefully big]

Election assistance such as that provided by the United States is distinct from the type of Russian election interference that has recently dominated headlines. Election assistance is a key element of international development, that does not support or oppose individual candidates in specific elections. It is practiced by nonpartisan, international non-governmental organizations, working with local partners to promote more professional and independent electoral institutions. American election assistance aims to promote democracy, overtly if possible, or covertly in the absence of a functioning democracry. Russian election interference aims to subvert democracy.
