The Senate for the 35th Cosa consisted of seven seats.

Elections

The Senate seat for Cézembre was held by the incumbent Francesco Felici, running as the Black Hand party candidate and receiving two of the three votes cast.

The sole Atatürk citizen to cast a vote in the election was RUMP voter Xhorxh Unamind, whose vote for the Conservative Loyalist Party's candidate gave the seat to Ian von Metairia.

Notes

1 Senator Felici failed to vote in the first two Clarks. Although he had also failed to vote in the final Clark of the 34th Cosa, the Secretary of State determined that Felici's re-election to office before the commencement of the 35th Cosa would require two failures (and not just a single failure) to vote before the seat would be vacated. Accordingly, it was vacated after the second Clark, and filled by appointment.

2 Senator Betiñéir did not hold sufficient tenure of citizenship to Organically vote the seat, and served without voting throughout his three Clarks of service representing Cézembre.

3 Senator Pànetâ, having failed to vote in both the first Clark of this Cosa and the final Clark of the 34th Cosa, vacated the Florencian Senate seat, and it was filled by appointment of Senator Woolley, who commenced service with the second Clark of this Cosa.

4 The renunciation of Maricopa's Senator Pete Hottelet after the conclusion of the 34th Cosa necessitated that the seat be filled through appointment. Rather than appoint a Senator, the executive officer of Maricopa chose to allow the seat to lay vacant for the entire Cosa.

5 Due to Senator Danihel Laurieir's failure to vote in the final two Clarks of the 34th Cosa, the Maritiimi-Maxhestic Senate seat was vacated. It was filled by appointment after the first Clark of the 35th Cosa when Senator von Buchholtz was appointed to the seat.

6 The renunciation of Maritiimi-Maxhestic's Senator Gary Cone after the conclusion of the 34th Cosa necessitated that the seat be filled by appointment and Senator Castiglha represented the province throughout the 35th Cosa.

7 The renunciation of Maricopa's Senator Amy Durnford after the conclusion of the 34th Cosa necessitated that the seat be filled by appointment. It lay vacant through the first Clark of the 35th Cosa, and was filled by appointment for the second Clark, with the new Senator, Baron Hooligan, resigning his single seat in the Cosa to take up service representing Vuode in the Senate.

8 The renunciation of Atatürk's Senator Marcus Cantalour after the conclusion of the 34th Cosa necessitated that it be filled by appointment. Senator von Metairia represented the province throughout the 35th Cosa.

Note that at this time Senatorial by-elections were not the practice; the Organic change mandating by-elections be held to fill vacancies after interim appointments was ratified subsequently. Accordingly, at this time, appointments to vacant seats allowed the appointee to hold the seat until the regular expiration of the term to which the former Senator had been elected, without the seat coming up for a by-election with the next dissolution of the Cosa.
