Election Passport contains legislative election results by constituency from countries around the world. I've focused on countries for which data are not easily available from other sources. For most countries, especially those with elections held using the single-member plurality or block vote systems, the data include candidate names. The data are unusually complete for all countries, including very small parties and independents. The readme files cite the data sources. Countrywide totals reported elsewhere do not always comport with the results here due to data discrepancies. I hope to add additional countries in the future.
I am grateful to the the German Marshall Fund of the U.S., and American University which all provided financial support for related projects. My thanks to Jon Weakley for his able research assistance in collecting and compiling election data.
