Elections in the Uris, are held in general elections. General elections elect all members of the Urian Duma of Peoples of Uris (MEs), and are open to all full citizens of the nation. They use party list proportional representation, implemented by a variation of the United States Electoral College which allows for preferential voting. MEs have a maximum term length of two years, to allow for any delays that may arise in calling a regular tri-annual election. Elections are called and organized by the State Elder and Tsarina.

Procedure

Even though the national popular vote is calculated by Bluenoser Media Cooperation and the Urian Government, the people only indirectly elect the MEs. The Members of the Urian Duma of Peoples are elected by the Electoral College, which consists of the ten electors from the four districts of Uris. Electors are nominated by a party and pledged to vote for their party's candidates. Each region require an elector to vote for the candidate to which the elector is pledged, and most electors do regardless, but some "faithless electors" have voted for other candidates or refrained from voting.

A candidate must receive an absolute majority of electoral votes (currently ten) to win a majority in the Urian Duma of Peoples. If no party receives a majority in the election for the Urian Duma of Peoples, the election is determined via a coalition between the parties.
