The June 2019 New Albion general election was held on 29 June 2019. It was the first election in the history of New Albion.

Electoral system

In this election, a proportional representation system was used, in which all citizens cast a vote for one of the parties, and the 10 seats in the House of Assembly were distributed proportionally based on those results.

Parties

Seven parties contested in the June election, the Albionic Order of Traditionalism, the Albionan Union of Fascists, the Conservative Party, Democratic Action, the Labour Party, the Monarchist Party, and the Social Democratic Party.

Campaign

Only five out of the seven parties contesting the June election (the Albionan Union of Fascists, the Conservative Party, Democratic Action, the Labour Party, and the Monarchist Party) publicly campaigned for the election. Democratic Action, the Monarchist Party, and the Social Democratic Party all created their own manifestos, which in the case of the Social Democratic Party, led to a rise in support. It is obvious that the Labour Party failed to mobilise their base, as they received only one vote.
