Europe Elects: Calendar

Note: Due to unforseeable events, elections may be rescheduled.

The table below considers European Parliament elections and national parliament and presidential elections in European states and territories, including national parliament by-elections. It also includes all regional elections and some local elections where these are held on a national basis or involve a capital city.

Europe Elects will post updates about the elections listed here on its social media platforms. Please note that Russia, Azerbaijan, and Belarus are rated as “authoritarian regimes” by the Economist Democracy Index and elections tend to be neither free nor fair.
