The Voting System is the method by which democratic elections take place simultaneously throughout eRepublik.
These elections take place each month and require citizens to have an Adult Title in order to be allowed to vote. Every time a citizen votes, they receive 5 EP.
If a citizen has already voted in a country/party, they are not allowed to vote again even if they change their country/party in the same day.
The results won't be released until 6 hours after the election has finished. More...

Country President Elections
The candidate with the largest number of votes becomes the President. If equal, the highest level of XP will be taken into consideration.
If the new president is a Congress member, they lose their congress member seat. The old president loses their president position.
The election process will end as usual at 00:00 (eRepublik time), but for the next six hours the results will not be final. During this time Admins will analyze the votes to ensure the fairness of the elections. If fake accounts were involved in voting, the votes cast by them will be removed. So the winners might easily change if there were fake accounts involved in the elections.
During the 6 hours delay the old Presidents, Congress members or Party presidents keep their seats. The alerts and rewards to the winners will be sent at 06:00 eRepublik time and the new Presidents/Congress members/Party presidents will step into office.
