Elections in Bermuda have been taking place since 1620. Bermuda elects on territorial level a legislature. Parliament has two chambers. The House of Assembly has 36 members, elected for a five-year term in single seat constituencies. The Senate has 11 appointed members. Bermuda has a two-party system, which means that there are two dominant political parties, with extreme difficulty for anybody to achieve electoral success under the banner of any other party.
