The Electoral Commission (Sabian: iderobók; lit. "Court of Elections") is an independent state agency responsible for organizing national, regional, local and partisan elections and referendums in Sabia and Verona. Its creation was mandated by the new and present Constitution of Sabia and Verona, which came into effect in 2017. Prior to the creation of the commission, the Home Ministry was responsible for organizing and monitoring elections nationwide.

As the central administrative authority for elections, the Electoral Commission has an instrumental role in all public elections in Sabia and Verona. It is expected to be neutral, nonpartisan and transparent. It's composed by three members who serve three-year terms; one must be selected by the Parliament, another by the Supreme Court, and another by HPM the King – the three unofficial "powers" of the Sabioveronese state. The commission's members – known as 'magistrates', same as the members of the judiciary – must renounce all party memberships and refrain from publicly endorsing any candidates or parties.

The current members of the commission are Orion K. Bennet (elected by the Fifth Parliament), Mattías Rou (selected by the Supreme Court), and Maximilien Gauvier (elected by HPM King Tarik). Gauvier has been the President of the Commission since 2017.
