Elections, referendums and voting

Elections give power to the people to allow them to elect an individual to an important position of power within the Government. Through participating in an election, whether that is through voting or running as a candidate, Hokorians keep democracy alive. 

Provisioned with important national decisions in mind, referendums allow the Hokorian Assembly to ask the public to choose from two or more options.

Types of election

Under the Act of Democratic Reform (2023), there are two types of elections in the State of Hokoria. These are the Chancellor and Governor elections.

Chancellor elections

Chancellor elections are held every 6 months and are conducted by the Hokorian Assembly. They look at electing a candidate as the Chancellor, who controls the Royal Government of Hokoria and takes a seat on the Hokorian Assembly.

By law, notice of at least 7 days must be given before voting begins. This allows for interested Citizens to register as a candidate in a Chancellor election. Voting takes place over 6 days.

Governor elections

Governor elections are held when called by the Monarch, also being conducted by the Monarch on behalf of a Territorial Government. They look at electing a locally registered Citizen as the Governor of the territory.

By law, notice of at least 7 days must be given before voting begins. This allows for interested Citizens to register as a candidate in a Governor election. Voting takes place over 6 days.

How referendums work

Referendums are held when called for by the Hokorian Assembly. They look at reaching a definitive conclusion in regard to a Hokorian Assembly motion.

By law, notice of at least 7 days must be given before voting begins. Voting takes place over 6 days.

How voting works

Voting in democratic processes takes place through an official ballot sent to Citizens by the Royal Government of Hokoria or the Hokorian Assembly.

Ballots are verified by cross-referencing the Citizen Tracking ID, Surname and email address provided in the ballot against the Department of the Interior’s Central Registry of Information (CRoI).
