This blog has recently gained many new readers. Because of that, I thought it might be worth sharing a  “A Look Back” where I periodically share my choices for the most important posts from the past twelve years. You can also see all of my choices for “Best” posts here.

This post appeared earlier this year.

How The World Votes is a super-impressive interactive from Al Jazeera.

It compares tons of elements related to voting in countries around the world, including voting age and structure of the governing system.  A small portion of all the info relates specifically to 2019 elections, but the vast majority of the site is not specific to this year.

It would be a good companion site to Constitute, another amazing resource that allows you to compare different constitutions used by countries around the world.

And for even more tools for comparing countries, check out these “Best” lists:
