The September 2020 Georgienstinian senatorial election took place on 6 September 2020. This election was held simultaneously with the September 2020 Georgienstinian Congressional Election.

The election saw the Nationalist suffering losses in both chambers with losses in the National House of Representatives being more severe. The election also saw the rise of the Movement for Socialism, which took votes from the Labour-Democratic Party, which suffered major losses, losing all of its senators.

Background

The July 2020 Georgienstinian Senatorial Election resulted in a Nationalist majority government. Shortly after the elections, Ben Olson and Sean Dunkerque renounced their Georgienstinian citizenship. The two later rejoined to form the Movement for Socialism.

Electoral system and organization

The Senate was composed of 6 seats elected by proportional representation in a single nationwide constituency, with a legal threshold of 1 full seat (20%), and residuals assigned by the D’Hondt method.

Campaign

The Nationalists released numerous posters listing their national conservative policies.
