Elections in Bolivia gives information on elections and election results in Bolivia.

Bolivia elects on national level a head of state – the president – and a legislature. The president and the vice-president are elected for a five-year term by the people (first round) or parliament (second round). The National Congress (Congreso Nacional) has two chambers. The Chamber of Deputies (Cámara de Diputados) has 130 members, elected for a five-year term by a mixture of proportional representation and first-past-the-post. The Chamber of Senators (Cámara de Senadores) has 27 members: each of the country's nine departments returns three senators: two from the party or formula that receives the most votes, with the third senator representing the second-placed party.

Bolivia has a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party often has a chance of gaining power alone, and parties must work with each other to form coalition governments.
