The Voting from Abroad Database is comprised of comparative data on external voting practices from around the world.

The sources used to compile the data include the official web portal of governments, regional organizations working in the area of democracy and electoral processes, and research institutes specialized in the area of elections and politics. The database is continuously updated by researchers who perform periodic global studies. You can search for information alphabetically, by region or organization.
