I need help with a game design I am working on. I am hoping to design a game on the 1998 Venezuelan election. I was wondering if anyone can point me to English language resources that discuss the electoral process in detail for Venezuela at the time, electoral maps and even election data. The books I have now do not do this.

I plan on spotlighting this election as the next game in a series of games focusing on fascinating modern elections. Two games have already been designed in the series.

Hello, any news about your board game? did you find enough information? that elections were pretty interesting because one candidate, which commanded a failed coup d'état 6 years ago, was a candidate, he came with a proposal consisting of refounding the Republic, make an all new Constitution, which would be approved later by the people, as some other changes.

If you can read in spanish I recommend you to enter the CNE website, CNE stands for National Electoral Council in spanish.

Here you have a link to a page about results and electoral system before 2004.
