Elections around the world have been impacted by COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) has called upon its global network of election authorities, local partners and field offices to aggregate the latest information on election postponements, adjusted election dates and risk-mitigating strategies adopted during elections. These resources are being regularly updated.

Please note that these lists are intended to be an informative resource but may not be comprehensive. Given the rapid evolution of the election landscape, they have not been subject to the stringent verification standards used for standard ElectionGuide data. Please contact IFES at if you know of additional election postponements or adjustments or believe any data in these resources to be inaccurate.
