ElecData is a compendium of electoral data from the 47 member states of the Council of Europe. This tool gathers the specificities of each electoral system of the Council of Europe. It allows to consult the electoral data via:

  • Individual cards for each country, including the minimum age for voting and being a candidate, the percentages of women candidates, women elected and parliamentarians under age 30, information on e-voting, voting methods abroad, etc.
  • Thematic and interactive maps to gain a global view of electoral systems, the situation of parity in parliaments, the number of young people in decision-making bodies in all Member States
  • Graphs collecting data on participation for all Member States over the last 20 years.

The various data collected were, and will be, in close collaboration with the electoral management bodies. This tool will be updated regularly and additional data added.
