ElectionGuide is provided by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), an international nonprofit dedicated to strengthening electoral democracy. Launched in 1998 through a grant from USAID and currently funded by the same, ElectionGuide is the most comprehensive and timely source of verified election information available online. It provides content on:
- National elections around the world;
- Subnational elections of high interest;
- Political parties and candidates;
- Referendum provisions;
- News on election-related laws and developments around the world;
- Political institutions and electoral systems;
- Election results and voter turnout.
IFES’ F. Clifton White Applied Research Center on Democracy and Elections (ARC) houses the ElectionGuide research team, which gathers the data, analyzes results, writes reports, and maintains the consistency and accuracy of ElectionGuide.
The ElectionGuide Digest provides news about democracy assistance research, reports, events, as well as guest expert commentary. It was launched in 2010 by the Consortium on Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) with generous USAID funding as a service to the democracy assistance research and practitioner communities.
The CEPPS partners are the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), the International Republican Institute (IRI), and the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI).
