Viewing the /election page on a site where there is currently no election, e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/election/ shows a list of past elections:

election history

However, the same page on a site where there is an ongoing election, e.g. https://math.stackexchange.com/election/ shows the current election:

ongoing election

Is there any URL which displays the entire election history for Mathematics right now? I'm aware of the links to single past elections, e.g. https://math.stackexchange.com/election/1.

Currently, there is no such way on the site itself; you'll have to rely on external sources like the Wayback Machine (example). Note that most of the snapshots are made when there is an active election.

It used to be possible to get to the election history by just adding a number higher than the number of elections of a non-existing election to the URL, e.g.:

(thanks @JonClements)

    Too bad math.stackexchange.com/election/all doesn't work, would be more intuitive. Oct 3, 2017 at 19:30
  • None of those workarounds works with the currently running election on Math.SE. (The first link “works” because that is the current election :)

    @MartinR right. They somehow fixed the 'bug', so I've updated the answer to include an off-site resource which might work.

    Great, thanks. – It would still be nice to have an official URL for that purpose, such as the election/all suggested above.
