Elections

Timing of elections

President: Every 4 years
Senate: Every 2 years ⅓ of the senate is replaced in a vote
Parliament: Every 4 years
Regional and municipal: Every 3 years

Process of elections

Elections are held for 36 hours. Voting rooms open at 7AM PMT on Friday and close on 7PM PMT on Saturday (6AM to 6PM PST). People can vote in the voting rooms (every municipality must have at least one voting room. In larger cities, there must be a minimum of one voting room per 10,000 people), by post (voters recieve special ballots with multiple watermarks and then they send a latter to a dedicated place by post (voting letter have purple stripe on them and are required to be delivered in less than 24 hours after the rooms close) or by a electronic device (voters enter their ID with their national passport into a specialised voting app and cast their vote from their home. Vote can be changed during the period of voting).

No campaign time

5 days before elections, it is prohibited to air political campaign rallys, do those rallys or spread any advertisement concerning the elections. 3 days before elections, media are prohibited from posting last-minute public opinion polls. Those rules are put in place to ensure, that there isn't a last-minute propoaganda push that can sway people's emotions and not their rationality.

Congress (Legislature)

Senate (Upper house)

Zhoushi Senate has 99 seats, which are distributed proportionally per votes, but only third of the seats are replaced every 2 years and votes are offset by 2 years (meaning that it takes a minimum of 6 years to completely change a senate). Political party can get 45 seats max, ensuring the need for a coalition to control the council.
