Elections in San Marino gives information on election and election results in San Marino.
San Marino elects on national level a legislature. The Grand and General Council (Consiglio Grande e Generale) has 60 members, elected for a five-year term by semi-proportional representation with national majority bonus (the winning coalition receives at least 35 seats on 60).
The first elections were held in March 1906 after the Arengo held on the same year that established democracy in the country. Between 1926 and 1943, the Sammarinese Fascist Party takes the power and the rest of parties are banned. Democracy is restored in 1945. Since early 2008, there is an electoral threshold of 3.5%. Since 2016, if none of the coalitions achieves an absolute majority of seats, a runoff between the two largest coalitions is held.
A parliamentary election was held in San Marino on 20 November 2016. The election was contested by two major coalitions: San Marino First (centre-right) and Adesso.sm (centre-left).
