Voting and Elections the World Over examines the electoral process across twenty-two countries. The book is a quick reference source for information about the major issues to consider when analyzing elections and their administration across nations. Thus, Voting and Elections the World Over looks at not only the type of electoral system in these countries, but also describes who administers elections; which are the offices people can vote for; who is allowed to vote with a particular emphasis on women's voting rights as well as the voting rights of felons. Furthermore, it provides information on the voting process and whether it is compulsory, the major political and financial regulations in the twenty-two countries pertaining to the conduct of elections, and information about voter turnout for national elections over at least the past ten years. The book provides useful reference information about the year when elections were first held in the countries we look at and information on when women received suffrage across these nations.
