Voting rights by category

Country Sex Religion Wealth, tax class, social class Intelligence Race Employment Criminality Nationality
 Burgundie Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Since 1853
Citizenship and thusly sufferage was offered to all residents of Burgundie and its possessions by the 1853 constitution. Citizenship is available to anyone who completes the federal service requirement and is retained by voting in the majority of elections each decade. Non-native residents are eligible for the federal service but the most prestigious way to gain Burgundian citizenship for non-natives is to serve in the Burgundian Foreign Legion.
 Çyr Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Since 1822 Since 1962 Since 1822
In contrast with the First Republic in 1816, the Second Republic was founded with extremely liberal voting laws. The only exception is that individuals with dual citizenship between the Çyr and elsewhere may not vote in Çyrine elections if they have not resided in the Çyr for longer than an election cycle (4 years) immediately prior to elections and are not performing duties for the Çyrine foreign service. Individuals who hold solely Çyrine citizenship may still vote. Residence is defined by living somewhere for a period of more than 6 months over a year.
 Diamavya Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Partial Partial
Since 1550 Since 1865 Since 1852 Since 1550 Since 1852 Since 2006
Electoral law has changed drastically throughout the history of Diamavya. The first major example of such was in 1550 when the leaders of the respective states of the Magnicronz Empire came together and voted to both allow women's suffrage and eliminate electoral laws prohibiting unintelligent people from voting. This continued to modernize in 1852 and 1865 as the Democratic Republic of Diamavya pushed for the elimination of discriminatory laws prohibiting those of other races, religions, and wealth, tax, and social clases from voting. Criminality still prohibits citizens from voting unless they apply for an exemption based on the nature of the crime or sentence given. Nationality still largely prohibits citizens from voting but from 2006 onwards you were granted the right to vote if you had citizenship, resident status, and had lived in Diamavya for a total of six months in the four years prior to the election.
 Insui Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Partial Partial
Originally 1680, then 1710 for second constitution.
The federal government, by way of the constitution, grants all citizens of Insui the right to vote. Exceptions to this include convicted criminals who are currently detained or imprisoned and residents of Insui who have not met the requirements for citizenship or resided in the nation for 30 consecutive months (excluding students, whom have different requirements). Because a person born in Insui retains their citizenship indefinitely (except when renounced), most citizens 18 years or older who reside outside Insui are eligible to vote absentee for federal office candidates in primary and general elections. In addition, some states allow overseas citizens to vote for state and local office candidates and referendums.
 United Kingdom Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No No
Since 1905 Since 1795 Since 1795 Since 1795 Since 1815 Since 1795 N/A N/A
Electoral law was thoroughly changed and modernised in 1795. In 1815 other races were also allowed to vote. Only citizens of the United Kingdom were allowed to vote. Criminals with heavy criminal records and imprisonment lose their right to vote.
