The 2008 Petorio Presidential Elections took place on October 13, 2008, in the Republic of Petorio. The 2 primary candidates in this election were Kalvin Koolidge (no political party) and Barry Ortiz (PIP). These elections were to decide the first head of state of the Republic of Petorio.

Before Election

This was the first election in Petorian history; thus, there was no incumbent president, and it was called at a very short notice. The election was announced on October 10, 2008 (the day the Petorian constitution was ratified by the final province/territory), and there was little preparation time.

On the same day, the election was announced. Kalvin Koolidge and Barry Ortiz were chosen by 4 other Petorian citizens to run because they were both co-founders. In the following days, the 2 candidates told the voters why they believed they should be president. Since Kalvin Koolidge had no political party, he lost support.
