Since 1908 Since 1798 Since 1798 Since 1798 Since 1810 Since 1798 Since 1901 Since 1990
Since the establishment of the Provisional Republican Authority of Ainin in 1798, there has been universal male suffrage in Ainin, although Kannei Namorese and Minjianese people were initially disenfranchised as they were not granted citizenship until 1810 due to fears of disloyalty. The current Constitution of 1901 expanded suffrage by removing the Constitution of 1801's disenfranchisement of current prisoners, and a constitutional amendment in 1908 granted suffrage to women. As part of administrative changes following the founding of the Esquarian Community, any EC citizen who has resided in Ainin for six months may vote in elections.

Since 1920 Since 1792/1952 Since 1792 Since 1792 Since 1792/1952 Since 1792 Since 1987 Since 2003
After the 1792 Aucurian Revolution, the right to vote was granted to all male Aucurian citizens over the age of 20. In practice, however, the vote was denied to Atlian Muslims and, in some local cases, to Aukurish Jews. Anti-Semitic restrictions on voting were illegalized nationally in 1800 by Bendiktas Klimantis, but legalized in 1840 by Grigorijus Endrijauskas, illegalized again in 1853 by Eduardas Songaila, instated at the national level in 1872 by Žygimantas Ramanauskas, and abolished and illegalized in 1952 by Maksymas Užugiris. Atlian Muslims remained disenfranchised until 1952. Suffrage was extended to women in 1920. The minimum voting age was lowered to 18 by Endrijūs Dovydaitis in 1980. Laws preventing convicted felons from voting were passed in 1829, but repealed under President Saulė Valantiejutė in 1987. Citizens of other Esquarian Union countries who had lived in Aucuria for at least three years were allowed to vote in local elections in 2003 by Rožė Kulešiutė; after Aucuria joined the Esquarian Community, this was extended to citizens of other EC members.

Since 1918 Since 1906 Since 1885 Since 1885 Since 1918 Since 1885 Since 1992 Since 2008
Wealth requirements were abolished in 1885, as well as knowledge tests and function. Non-Txoists and non-Christians were able to get the vote by 1906 with the repeal of the 1523 edict that recognized those two religions as the only legal religions. Women and non-whites (excluding Namorese, who already got the vote) were able to get the national vote in 1918. Felons were only able to get the vote in 1992 after a decision made by the Supreme Court of Katranjiev to permit felons to vote. Since 2008, permanent residents and legal immigrants are allowed to vote in local elections: prior to that, only residents of EC member states who lived in Katranjiev longer than six months can vote.
 Lecia Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No No
Since 2016 Since 1945 Since 2016 Since 1945 Since 1945 Since 1945
In 1945, all males over 18 were allowed to vote before elections were banned in 1947. With the signing of a new constitution in 1965, the electorate was lowered to men over 21 without a criminal conviction and with assets of over 20,000 Lecistani florins. This was changed in 2015 to 10,000 LEF. The vote was extended to all Lecistani citizens over the age of 21, regardless of gender, wealth, or class, after the Second Lecistani Civil War as one of the stipulations of the Treaty of Szimóngôcz.
 Montecara Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Since 1869 Since 1596/1869 Since 1869 Never restricted Never restricted Never restricted Since 1990
Suffrage was extended to Jews in 1596 and religious barriers to voting were prohibited entirely in 1869. Universal adult suffrage was introduced with the adoption of the Declaration of the Rights of the Citizen in 1869 as part of the Liberal Revolution. Suffrage was extended to prisoners in 1990 by the Charter of Basic Rights.
 Senria Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No No
Since 1946 Since 1918 Since 1918 Since 1918 Since 1918 Since 1918
During the 1918-1926 Senrian Revolution, the newly-declared Senrian Republic proclaimed that the right to vote was to be extended to all male Senrian citizens over the age of 25 with no felony crimes. Suffrage was extended to women in 1946 by Prime Minister Katurou Imahara, supposedly at the urging on his wife Keiko. The voting age was lowered to 22 in 1962 by Tokiyasu Kitamura, and to 20 in 1988 by Kiyosi Haruka.
 Xiaodong Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No No
Since 1938 Since 1990 Since 1938 Since 1990 Since 1938 Since 1938
The first elections in Xiaodong were restricted to landowning, literate, ethnic Xiaodongese males of Xiaodongese citizenship over the age of 25 who were not in military service. The 1934 suffrage law saw voting rights extended to Xiaodongese citizens including men and women over the age of 25 if they passed a literacy test and met property qualifications. The 1988 Law of the Electorate abolished property qualifications. In 2003 the Law on the Electorate abolished literacy qualifications alongside lowering the voting age to 21 and enfranchising Christians. Currently voting rights are not granted to those mentally insane, in prison or non-Xiaodongese citizens.
