Elections in Monaco gives information on election and election results in Monaco.

Monaco elects on national level a legislature (parliament). The National Council (Conseil National) has 24 members, elected for a five-year term, 16 elected by a winner-take-all plurality system, and the other 8 by proportional representation. Each voter may cast a ballot with up to 16 candidates' names. First, the 16 individuals with the most votes are elected. Then, votes are counted by party groups to fill the remaining 8 seats. E.g., if a party polled 51% of the votes it would probably win 20 out of 24 seats (all 16 of the winner-take-all seats and then 4 of the 8 proportional seats). At the last national elections held in February 2008, the incumbent government was reelected, though with a reduced margin of victory; the number of seats won remained the same as in the 2003 election for the two coalitions which won seats.
