Bahrain solely holds elections for the Chamber of Deputies (lower Chamber of the bicameral Bahraini Parliament, the Shura Council members being appointed by the King).

The website of the Directorate of Election and Referendum ( ) provides details relating to the candidates and the number of votes they each acquired in each voting round. The data available on the website does not include the total number of registered voters or the number of invalid votes - therefore it has been considered as not being available online for the purpose of the index.
