Elections are the process by which a populace elects their political leaders. Elections are typically only utilized in democratic nations with some exceptions. Elections come in multiple different forms such as: First Past the Post (the first person to win a relative majority), Absolute Majority (the winner is the candidate which receives 50%+1 of the votes), Instant Run-Off Voting (system where voters rank their preferred candidates), and many more.
