Who currently has the right to vote in your nation? The 10% of our population deemed to be Cives (Citizens) are permitted to vote, although most citizens are expected to vote as their Equestrian and Patrician patrons need them to vote.

Who does not have the right to vote in your nation? The 90% of our population deemed to be Peregrinus (non-citizen) are denied the franchise due to the fact that they have not yet earned the franchise and found a suitable patron.

What is the timeline of suffrage in your nation?
1-2500 AM (1208 BC - 1292 AD): Citizens are granted a single vote per person.
2500-present AM (1292 - present AD): Citizens' votes are tabulated based upon their income through possession of Hidage Rights or equivalent Patronage Contract. Suffrage is based upon 1 Equus (Sestertius / silver Half-Dollar) = 1 vote. Happiness with new suffrage system remains strong to this day.

3000 BC to 1000 AD-Tribal Vallermoore. No formal voting but many tribes have informal voting amongst themselves.
1000 AD to 1657 AD-Rule of the Queens of Vallermoore. No voting allowed.

1668-After a Civil war, Amber is defeated and the new Queen allows the formation of a House of Commons and House of Lords and surrenders 90% of her powers. The Monarchy can only interfere to protect itself, in a dire emergency, or in a deadlocked Parliament. At this stage only 5% of the female population and none of the male population can vote, and voters must be wealthy. At this stage and until stated, only whites can vote.
1715-All women who own their own house or have paid over 70% of the mortgage can vote. 20% of women can now vote.
1745-All women who are not in prison or insane can vote if they are 21 or older.

1898-All males in the armed forces can now vote, pushing the total up to 33% of males.
1950-All males aged 21 or older who are not in prison or insane can vote.

Who currently has the right to vote in your nation?
Full citizens of the Imperium hold the right to vote and run for office, "full citizens" being all Sidhae who have completed at least 3 years of military service. This comprises roughly 25% of the Sidh population.

Who does not have the right to vote in your nation?
Civilians, all non-Sidhae and convicted criminals.

What is the timeline of suffrage in your nation?
There's not much of a timeline to speak of. Ever since Imperium's founding in 2071, the suffrage law has remained unchanged, and is deemed one of the most sacrosanct laws of Sidh society.
Freedom doesn't mean being able to do as one please, but rather not to do as one doesn't please.

═───╡❖╞──────────────═ Issue of Dispute ═──────────────╡❖╞───═
═───╡❖╞────────═ Voting in the Undying Empire ═────────╡❖╞───═




The Undying Empire does not hold democratic elections. All power lies within the position Eternal Emperor, the man who sits the Undying Throne. This power is delegated to the Lords Archon of the High Council, who pass proposed legislation, enforce it, and represent the government of the empire. The Imperial Senate, whom devise bills, acts and laws, and otherwise meet to discuss possible actions to ongoing affairs. And the High Tribunal, who prosecutes those who violate passed laws, and ensure the judicial flow of the empire runs smoothly.

Members of the High Council, the Imperial Senate, and the High Tribunal are appointed by the Eternal Emperor or his predecessor. Notably, members of the Imperial Senate often possess 'ancestral seats', meaning that the political heir of a Senator will by tradition inherit that seat. He still needs to be named by the emperor himself, but this is merely a formality. The High Council is non-hereditary, and focuses purely on meritocracy and loyalty. In some cases, a High Council member can be drawn from the Senate. The Tribunes are appointed through judicial skill.

Citizens of the empire do not vote in such matters. There are polls, censuses and other such times where the Emperor will allow the opinion of the people to be assessed, to determine how the majority of the nation desire the empire to move, and try to carry this out in a manner that ensures the empire succeeds, but if the popular vote does not swing in a way that benefits the empire, it will not be taken as an action. Notably however, these polls are only open to adult men whom are citizens. Non-citizens and women cannot vote.

This has persisted largely since the foundation of the Undying Empire, and the Golden Empire that existed prior to this was even more authoritarian. In the Undying Empire, many worship the Eternal Emperor as a God-King, and thus if he commands, they will inherently believe that what he decrees is good. Some, though loyalist, are not so devout, and yet others are sceptics and oppose the status quo (a dangerous position indeed), but through combination of awe and terror, the Anogaryen Dynasty and their vassals have held power for over a thousand years, and the people do not possess the means to force them to relinquish it.

Thus to ask who does and doesn't have the power to vote is a pair of questions that cannot be decisively answered when the answer to one negates the other. Senators do vote on legislation, but that legislation still has to be approved by the High Council, examined for flaws by the High Tribunal, and then approved of by the Emperor before it is considered law, rendering their power nothing more than delegation. The Emperor would rather have a couple hundred men assessing the situation, then a dozen determining if the proposed law is good, and have his Tribunes ensure it lacks flaws, before making a hasty decision either way. Not every Emperor thinks this way, but the Undying Empire is fortunate to have a ruthless, calculating, patient and above all intelligent tyrant as their Eternal Emperor; Valerion III Vaegalis.

To the Emperor, his people are the empire. To protect them is to protect the empire. To strengthen them is to strengthen the empire. But they cannot rule the empire. The people do not act as a single mind or entity, and if given such power would tear the empire into pieces, each piece corresponding to a narrow view of reality. Instead, Valerion has many different men with many different views assess the situation, a popular act come through, and ensure it is beneficial before enacting it. Only by concentrating power on himself, and delegating it out to trusted, traditional, and established organisations can the Eternal Emperor ensure that the empire progresses.

So no. Citizens do not have the right to vote on government affairs. We have no history of suffrage, or at least, no successful one. The Eternal Emperor commands, the loyalists obey, and if they're smart, so do the dissenters.

Who currently has the right to vote in your nation?
Any citizen aged 18 or older.

Who does not have the right to vote in your nation?
Citizens under the age of 18, permanent residents, foreign nationals, certain prisoners (imprisonment does not automatically result in disenfranchisement, courts can include it as part of a sentence for political crimes such as electoral fraud, voter intimidation, or treason. Regardless of the reasoning, disenfranchisement as part of a criminal sentence cannot last longer than eight years)

1794 - 1837: Male citizens aged 30 and above who owned property valued to at least 500 livres

Who currently has the right to vote in your nation?
Women above the age of 18.

Who does not have the right to vote in your nation?
All men (They'd be vastly outnumbered in the vote anyway, since there are 733 women for each man in Fendur).

What is the timeline of suffrage in your nation?

1931 - Monarchy abolished, democracy established

1941 - Voting age limit adjusted from 21 to 18.

1978 - Men temporarily given voting rights as part of the Male Rights Movement (Which was largely funded by foreign nations), but enormous public outcry and government suppression quickly destroyed the movement both among the public and in the government. This effectively killed off any further attempts to increase male rights, which includes the right to vote.

Who currently has the right to vote in your nation? All sentient creatures, who are citizens of TurtleShroom and are of the age of majority, who have committed no felonies and are of sound mind may vote in any TurtleShroomian election.

Who does not have the right to vote in your nation? Felons, the mentally insane, non-citizens, and chimeras (although this is redundant, as a human-animal hyrbid cannot become a citizen).

What is the timeline of suffrage in your nation? TurtleShroom enacted universal suffrage for all sentient species (of both sexes if applicable) within it at the ratification of its Constitution in 1796 AD.
