General elections were held in Barbados on 3 November 1966.[1] Unlike previous elections, which used single-member constituencies, this election was contested using two-member constituencies, in which each voter had two votes.[2] The result was a victory for the Democratic Labour Party, which won 14 of the 24 seats. Voter turnout was 79.7%.[1]
