The Parliament of Asgardia is comprised of 13 electoral districts. An electoral district of Asgardia is a territorial subdivision for electing Members of Parliament (MPs). Asgardian district boundaries are also determined by the distribution of the most spoken languages in Asgardia.
Setting up the electoral districts will be the first step in Asgardia’s parliamentary elections.
Twelve of the 13 districts were formed on the basis of most spoken languages in Asgardia, based on what Asgardians have indicated as their primary language during registration.
Asgardians whose languages are not represented by the 12 electoral districts may choose to join the 13th electoral district, which represents all other languages spoken by Asgardians.
Anyone who is 18 years old or older, and has accepted the Constitution of Asgardia will automatically be assigned to an electoral district which represents his/her spoken language.
If for any reason, one wants to switch to a different district, he/she may do so until November 12, 2017.
MPs will be elected in a system under which the number of seats depends on the size of the electoral district. Therefore, the number of MPs selected per district will depend on the number of parliamentary seats allocated to them. The electoral districts of Asgardia will be assigned parliamentary seats in proportion to the number of Asgardians represented by each electoral district.Nominate yourself
