How and when do elections take place

You can see the time of announcing official results from the election page.
Presidential elections official results.

In Presidential elections, there are a few dates all candidates and voters should pay very close attention to.

  • The 2nd day of the month is the last day which parties can set their candidates. So make sure your party president sets your candidate and that the candidate accepts the proposal before 23:59 of the 2nd day!
  • On the 5th day of each month, the presidential elections take place in eRepublik. You will need to visit the voting polls in order to see the list of a maximum of five presidential candidates from your country. It is there that you can place your vote (it is required to have an Adult Title in order to vote) as your mind (or heart) tells you to.
  • On the 6th day of the month the following takes place:
  1. At 00:00 (eRepublik time) voting ends for the Presidential elections.
  2. Between 00:00-23:59, results are displayed as Intermediate results, as Admins verify that Multi-accounts were not used.
  3. The previous President remains as President until 23:59
  • On the 7th day of the month, on the elections page, the results will be changed to Official results and the most voted candidate in a country becomes the President.


  • Q: What happens if country is conquered during elections?
    • A: Nothing. Presidential elections are held even if the country isn't at the map during elections.
  • Q: What happens if one candidate changes the party on the 6th of the month?
    • A: The candidate will lose all the votes when changing the party before the results of the elections appear.
  • Q: What happens if there's a tie?
  • Q: I got the support of a party president, but was not on the ballot for the presidential elections?
    • A: Only top 5 candidates get an opportunity to be on the ballot. The top 5 candidates are determined by the highest rank of the party that supported them, and only the parties with the higher rank will be able to send their candidate on the presidential elections. In case of a tie, the candidacy is decided based on the candidate with more experience points. An example below shows how the ranking works:
Candidate A got the support of party 1, 4 and 7 - as the largest party supports the candidate, the candidate is ranked #1
Candidate B got the support of party 2 and 9 - as the second largest party supports the candidate, the candidate is ranked #2
Candidate C got the support of party 3 and 17 - as the third largest party supports the candidate, the candidate is ranked #3
Candidate D got the support of party 5, 11, 14, 15 and 16 - as the fourth largest party already supports the candidate #1, the next ranked party is the 5th largest party, so this candidate is ranked #4
Candidate E got the support of party 6 - following the previous rule, the 6th largest party is the next in line, hence their candidate is ranked #5
Candidate F got the support of party 8, 10, 12, 13 and 18 - the 8th largest party is next in the line, hence their candidate is ranked #6 and will not appear on the elections
  • Q: What happens if the party president who proposed me, proposes another candidate before I accept the support?
    • A: You won't be able to accept the support. That means the support can be accepted only by the latest player the party president proposed.
