About Us

CaribbeanElections.com was developed to provide current and historical information on politics, democracy, and the electoral process for 28 countries within the Caribbean.  There is a special focus on citizenship education and the importance of being involved in the democratic process.  The site is designed to serve as a one-stop knowledge portal for learners, educators, researchers, and the public, thereby assisting in the formulation of informed decisions - from the policy to the citizen levels.

Launched in January 2008 for the Barbados General Elections, the site contains information on general and presidential elections held in the Caribbean for the period 2008 – present.  For some countries, the portal also includes information on elections going back to 1951 when universal adult surfrage was introduced.

CaribbeanElections.com is being increasingly used as a reference site for other international election portals, regional electoral offices, academic institutions, and websites.  Now in its sixth year, CaribbeanElections.com is the leading portal for information on democracy, citizenship, politics, and the electoral process in the Caribbean. 

PURPOSE & OBJECTIVES

The Caribbean Elections Portal consolidates thousands of resources on elections, democracy, citizenship, and governance in the Caribbean into a comprehensive searchable knowledgebase.
The primary goals of Caribbean Elections Portal are:

  • To serve as a digital repository for the preservation, consolidation, and organisation of knowledge assets related to elections, democracy, citizenship, and governance in the Caribbean.
  • To improve public access is information related to democracy, citizenship, and the electoral process in the Caribbean.
  • To provide resources aimed at stimulating interest among students, educators, and voters on democracy, citizenship, and the electoral process in the Caribbean.
  • To facilitate comparative research on legislative elections in the Caribbean.
SCOPE

The Knowledgebase includes data from 28 Caribbean territories as follows:

  • Independent territories  - Antigua & Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago.
  • British Overseas Territories: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, Turks & Caicos
  • Dutch Territories: Aruba and Curacao
  • French Territories:  Guadeloupe, and Martinique

We hope to add resources for the following territories in future versions:

  • Dutch territories: Bonaire, St Eustatius, Saba, Sint Maarten.
  • French territories:  French Guyana and St Martin
RESOURCES

The Knowledgebase provides information on the results of both national elections in the Caribbean from the 1950s, through the independence period, to the most recent elections.  Information on by-elections and local elections is also included for some countries. These data are presented at various levels of detail, allowing users to quickly identify the results of elections within a country as a whole, within particular constituencies or districts, at the candidate or party levels.

The Political Parties module includes information on current and defunct parties regardless of the number of votes that they won. The data are based on countries' official election results and have been amassed from various government institutions.

The data are accessible in multiple formats, including spreadsheets, tables, graphs, and maps.  The spreadsheets provide data at the national and subnational level and lend themselves easily to statistical analysis. The tables allow you to quickly find out how many votes and seats a party won in a particular election, while the maps allow visualisation of results across districts.

Our archives also contain hundreds of other documents such as party manifestos, critical speeches, strategic and policy documents, development reports, campaign material, and media files.

CaribbeanElections.com is provided as a public service by KnowledgeWalk Institute, a Barbados-based research and development company.
