The September 2022 Cascadia general election was the second monthly general election in Cascadia to elect the Governor of Cascadia and all twelve seats in the House of Representatives for one-month terms. It was held from September 16 to September 17, 2022. ViolentVampire and SayerQT were elected as the 2nd Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Cascadia. This was the second of three elections in Cascadia to not be held on the third Sunday of a month, prior to the ratification of the 2nd amendment to the first Constitution of Cascadia. This was the first election in Cascadia to use the system of Single Transferable Vote (STV).

Incumbent President SayerQT did not stand for re-election. The presidential election resulted in a victory for incumbent Treasurer ViolentVampire, receiving a record 95.2% of the vote. Voter turnout was down slightly at 46.7% of registered voters. The House elections resulted in incumbents winning just half of the seats, with incumbents winning just around 52% of first-preference votes. These were also the first elections for the House of Representatives held under Proportional Representation instead of First-past-the-post, put into place by the Representation of the People Act passed in early August.

Electoral system

Governor

The Governor of Cascadia was elected by First-past-the-post (FPTP) voting due to only two candidates being on the ballot. In this system, voters cast a single vote for a single candidate, and whichever candidate gets the most votes after the voting period has ended, they are elected governor. The voting period lasts for roughly twenty four hours. Voters may mark only one candidate.

House of Representatives

Members of the House of Representatives were elected by score voting from 4 constituencies with three seats. In this system, voters give each candidate a score, the scores are added (or averaged), and the candidate with the highest total is elected. The voting period lasts for roughly twenty four hours.

Electoral boundaries

Interim Governor SayerQT issued the Decree of Electoral Law, in which the borders of districts in the House of Representatives as well as seat magnitude were issued for the following election.

Chief Judge

The Chief Judge of Cascadia was elected by First-past-the-post (FPTP) voting due to four candidates being on the ballot. In this system, voters cast a single vote for a single candidate, and whichever candidate gets the most votes after the voting period has ended, they are elected chief judge. The voting period lasts for roughly twenty four hours. Voters may mark only one candidate.

Campaign

Applications were opened on August 13. ToasterBurnt was the first to announce their candidacy. ImLitten of Helena also announced their candidacy, but their application was invalid since they did not choose their Executive Council. SayerQT announced her candidacy, stating that she would prioritize increasing activity and towns as much as possible, while also starting the creation of a strong cascadian government system that can provide for the towns, citizens, and mayors alike". ViolentVampire was the last to announce his candidacy. This candidacy however was seen as mostly as a shitpost, as it only consisted a part of Palpatine's Declaration of a New Order, as well as his Executive Council picks being only himself. In the end, SayerQT and ToasterBurnt were the only valid candidates for this election.
