Latin American Election Statistics: A Guide to Sources
Consists of a series of volumes on selected Latin American countries that provide chronologies of elections since independence at the municipal, state, and federal levels and lists sources of statistics for each election as identified. The statistics themselves are not reproduced on this site except occasionally for national-level results of presidential elections, seats won in congressional elections, or numbers of municipalities won by specific parties. Also included is information on events affecting election outcomes; the emergence and development of political parties; electoral code changes; and, on the roles of women, indigenous populations, and religious organizations in each country's electoral politics. Data is available from the early nineteenth century to about 2000 [data for Dominican Republic begins in 1791].
