The 2019 general election led to a political crisis and widespread protests, culminating in the resignation of President Evo Morales. The 2020 election was originally scheduled for May 3, then pushed back to September 6, and subsequently October 18 due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.


Individuals in Bolivia are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
