Indokistani presidential election, 2011
Indokistani presidential election of 2011 (Indonesian: Pemilihan Presiden Indokistan tahun 2011) was an election took place in 13 September 2011 in order to elect new president succeeding Farhan Abdurrahman, that his term will ends in September 2011.
The election was seen as the most successful inside Indokistani history because of several reasons. 2011 election was the only election that uses physical voting booth (opened in Jumstraad), while in the next election, an online poll instead was used, remembering Indokistani citizens that began to live in far distance against each other. This election also became the one with most voters, with 19 out of 23 registered voters cast their votes.
Indokistani National Electoral Commission (NEB) at that time declared that number of eligible voters were 23 peoples, after verifying the results of previous census. All of 23 eligible voters were automatically registered as voters by the commission. NEB later decided to set voting booth only in Jumstraad, remembering that majority of Indokistani citizens live in Jumstraad, and close proximity and easy access between the city with Flastraad and Trastraad.
In 13 September, from total 23 registered voters, 19 voters cast their votes, while 4 more does not vote. It was later revealed that from 4 non-voting citizens, 3 were outside Indokistan during voting period, while one others were deliberately abstaining.
