Voting[edit | edit source]

To be eligible to vote, a nation must either be a World Assembly or Military Voting citizen, meaning a resident in the region that is either a member of the World Assembly or registered as actively participating in a leftist or anti-fascist military.

Voters were asked to rank every submission on their ballot for each contest.

Counting[edit | edit source]

The single transferable voting system is used, where the primary votes of all submissions are tallied, and the submission with the least votes is eliminated and their votes preferentially distributed until one submission achieves a majority.
