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 userboxes are {{User E&R}} and {{User WikiProject E&R}}. 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 the national level worldwide can be found at the
