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 Burgoignesc citizenship for non-natives is to serve in the Burgundian Foreign Legion.
Caphiria Partial Partial
Since 1833
Diamavya Partial Partial
Since 1550 Since 1826 Since 1670 Since 1550 Since 1670 Since 2013
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 Magnavyan Empire came together and switched the country to a democracy from an autocracy. Universal suffrage regardless of gender was immediately established and citizens of the Magnavyan Empire were allowed to vote regardless of their intelligence. It would take until 1670 for the next set of major voting reforms to take place. In this year the newly established Tandemocratic Republic of Cronzcovina granted universal suffrage to all races and got rid of wealth employment barriers that previously prevented less affluent citizens to vote in elections. Discriminatory religious laws were abolished upon the creation of the First Republic of Diamavya in 1826, though these laws became more complicated upon the establishment of the Grand Authoritarian Republic of Diamavya in 1953 as blasphemy laws prohibited anyone from claiming to believe in a religion other than Christianity but didn't prohibet these other religions from actually being practised. 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 2013 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.
Fhainnaeran Partial Partial Partial
(year) (year) (year) (year) (year) (year)
Citizenship and its associated voting rights are applied for, rather than granted at birth or through naturalization in Fhainnaeran. Voting requires a repeating administrative and registration fee, excepting public servants and military personnel/veterans. Additionally, foreign nationals, foreign residents, and expats are not extended the franchise.
Insui 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.
Mellifera Partial
Since 1913 (in all Commonwealths since 1948) Since 1775 (in all Commonwealths since 1949) Since 2015 N/A
Mellifera uses a unique familial voting system, whereby each nuclear family, or household under certain circumstances, is granted a number of votes equivalent to its size, and these votes are exercised collectively by the family as a juridical person, and can be split between multiple candidates. This model was developed as a compromise with the suffragists, but failed to satisfy the movement and continues to be under sustained criticism both domestically and internationally. By decision of the Supreme Court in 1949, competency as established by the Constitution, natural law, and federal statute was incorporated into the law of the commonwealths. In 2015, the Temporal Courts passed a law granting suffrage to released convicts.
Since 1972
Under the Basic Law, the government of Nolis grants all citizens and foreign nationals with permanent residency status the right to vote in national elections for their geographical constituency in the Legislative Council (all residents may vote in district elections). However, some citizens and permanent residents, as part of the electorate for the Council's 67 functional constituency seats, may vote twice, once as a voter for their geographical constituency, and once as a voter for their functional constituency.
Since reunification in 1991
Ralvithjan voting is a sign-up system, whereby you pay an additional tax which goes to the institute of your choosing. This generally allows you to vote within the institute you are paying too. However this system means that those who are unable to afford this tax have no voting power
