World Wide Elections - 2021

who votes doesn't count, but who counts the votes does.

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
  • 30 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.
