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 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!

To do[edit]

Election and referendum years[edit]

The subpage /Elections and referendums lists all national election and referendum templates and notes whether they are complete or not (in terms of having every election/referendum linked and whether there are articles on those elections/referendums).

Election and referendum results[edit]

The subpage /Election results aims to list all elections by year and notes whether the results are complete or not; articles with incomplete results can be found in Category:Election and referendum articles with incomplete results. A few other articles can be found via Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Election results missing.

Referendums in the European Union[edit]

The subpage /Referendums in European Union aims to create an article about referendums in each of the European Union countries.
