August 2016 Ionathanopolis local election
The August 2016 Ionathanopolis local election took place on 5 August 2016, and was the first local election in the history of the Empire of Austenasia to only take place in a single one of the Empire's towns, this having been provided for in the August 2015 constitutional amendments. The election was to elect a Representative for Ionathanopolis to speak and vote on their behalf in the House of Representatives.
A single candidate - Lord Peter Palaiologos, Count of Mentavlos, the Acting Representative - stood for election, and was elected with 100% of the vote.
All three residents of Ionathanopolis eligible to vote - two of its five residents being under sixteen years old - voted. Voters had the option to abstain, which renders an election inconclusive should it gain more votes than the candidate.
|Name||Number of votes||Percentage of votes|
