The August 2019 Abeldane state referendum was a referendum in Abelden asking whether or not the Abeldane Empire should admit the Archduchy of Tusmore as a federal state. In total 33 people voted, 30 in favour and 0 against, and 3 abstentions. The referendum passed with 90.91% in support, granting the government the power to admit Tusmore as a federal state, with the consent of the federal monarchs.

Background

Discussion on the creation of a seventh federal state in Abelden had been an ongoing topic for some time, with Nicholas Kaos, Former Abeldane Emperor, wishing to establish a state of his own. The Tusmore Referendum Act was presented to and subsequently enacted by the Reichsversammlung on 2 August 2019.

Campaign

There was little opposition to the creation of Tusmore, and as such there was little active campaigning undertaken. The main argument for the admittance or Tusmore was that it would create a state other than Alenshka which could be active.
