The July 2023 Austenasian local elections took place on 31 July 2023 for the Austenasian Divisions. These were the first elections held for the Divisions, which since their foundation on 1 July had for the past month been represented by Acting Representatives. One of these Acting Representatives, Lord Andrew, stood for election and was voted in to the position proper for Britain and Ireland; the other three Acting Representatives did not stand for their Division.

The Europe and Africa Division had three candidates running against each other, the most to date to stand for a single seat in a local election. The three other Divisions had only a single candidate standing, and had a notably lower turnout. In such elections, voters unhappy with the sole candidate have an Abstain option which, were it to have gained the majority of votes, would have forced a fresh election for that Division.
