Elections in Theolonia include elections to the Executive Council, the Legislative Assembly, the High Court, and referendum questions.

The Basic Law of Atovia, the Constitution of Theolonia, as well as other federal and provincial laws govern elections and establish requirements such as the secret ballot and requirement that all elections be conducted in a free and fair manner. Article 40, clause (1) of the Basic Law establishes universal suffrage and guarantees the right to vote and run for office: "All Atovian citizens over the age of sixteen, unless they lack legal capacity due to mental illness or mental incapacity, have political rights in national matters." Article 19, clause (1) of the Constitution of Theolonia has a similar purpose and reads: "All Atovian citizens who are citizens of the province, are at least 16 years of age, and are entitled to vote on federal matters enjoy voting and electoral rights and the other political rights in respect of provincial and municipal affairs."

Legislative elections in Theolonia are for all members of the Legislative Assembly and executive elections are for the Executive Council. A legislative and executive election was held in June 2020.
