A general election was held in the Atlantic Commonwealth on 13 January 2016 as called upon the ratification of the new Constitution of the revived Federated States of America. The election is considered the first and only election ever held in the Federated States' 2 year history aside from the scheduled May 2016 election, and is just as much considered the second election and first general election to take place in the historical domains of the present-day Essian Commonwealth.

The election's result drew widespread confusion and a crisis as President Henry Twain's party, United Atlantic, won only a minority and yet was endorsed by both major parties to remain President of the Atlantic Executive Council.
