What data is expected?

This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Results for major electoral contests
  • Number of registered votes
  • Number of invalid votes
  • Number of spoiled ballots
  • Data available at polling station level

How open is the data?

12th Saeima election (2014) is the most recent general election. The situation is the same as last year as there has not been an election since.

Submission is valid. Data is available in XML format. Submitter states that getting to a data file is the difficult part. Once you get to the election result site you have to figure that the dataset is hidden under a link saying "XML".
