Is it possible to lose the right to vote?Edit

  • Flag-aethelnia Aethelnia - The head of state is entitled to vote, but doesn't exercise this right. Neither do senior members of the royal house. Impartiality is key.
  • Lendosa - People sentenced to prison terms lose the right to vote.
  • Listonianfreestateflag Listonian Free State — Yes. Those under conviction or imprisoned for a felony temporarily lose the right to vote.

  • Flag-portocapital Porto Capital - Those who are currently serving jail time are not allowed to vote.
  • Rosardan - If the person has been convicted of a felony.
  • Scwflag Shaelic Commonwealth — Law states that any individual "mentally incapable of understanding their voting obligations and responsibilities" is not eligible to vote. Also, individuals serving prison sentences are not eligible to vote. This is restored eight years after their release, provided they have not been convicted of further crimes. Eligibility is permanently revoked after second conviction.

Political partiesEdit

AllowedEdit

  • Flag-aethelnia Aethelnia - Political parties must be registered. Election thresholds exist for seats.
  • Listonianfreestateflag Listonian Free State — Political parties are unrestricted, but must be registered with the Central Elections Commission; thresholds exist for seats in the National Assembly.
  • Flag-portocapital Porto Capital - Political parties are allowed, although there is no official registry for these groups. The Foro deļa Unidad Soçialismista, or "Forum of Socialist Unity", acts unofficially as a broad front for socialist and communist parties. Most politicians are affiliated to one of these parties. Thus, even though the government preffers to reffer to the People's Republic as a partyless state, this arrangement in practice makes Porto Capital a one-party socialist state.
  • Rosardan - People are allowed to form political parties.
  • Scwflag Shaelic Commonwealth — Political parties must be registered. Election thresholds exist.
  • Trinia - Political parties are unrestricted, although the Trinian electoral system makes them somewhat different to parties elsewhere.
  • Xochimechatl - None of the jurisdictions have any substantial restrictions on party formation.

Allowed with restrictionsEdit

  • Lendosa - Political parties must be registered, a process which involves satisfying certain criteria on size of membership, acceptance of the political system, and non-overlap with existing parties.
  • Mari'im - Political parties must be approved by the state, which largely eliminates the possibility of any serious opposition forming.
  • St. Samuel — Political parties must be registered and satisfy certain criteria set by the King.
