Four senatorial elections were held concurrently to the April 2019 General Election: the normally scheduled races in Fiovâ, Florencia and Maricopa, and the special election in Cézembre.

Cézembre (special)

Amada Merþedes was elected at the second round of IRV elimination, with 50% of first preferences. She will serve in the Ziu for the first time. Notably, she will be ineligible to vote before March 29th 2020 due to being a citizen for less than a year, which will likely see her lose her seat.

Cézembre Senate Special Election
Amada Merþedes 6 7
Litz Cjantscheir (write-in) 2 2
Ián da Bitoûr (write-in) 2 2
Martì Vataldestreça (write-in) 1 1/0*
Txosuè Rôibeardescù (write-in) 1 0/1*
FreeDem GAIN from IND

*: Merþedes wins in the second round irrespective of which candidate between Vataldestreça or Rôibeardescù is eliminated.

Florencia

Açafat del Val won the seat after a four-way tie in first preference votes. This is the first time the Florencian Senate seat is won by a non-monarchist since the very first incumbent, Danihel Laurieir, in 1997. Del Val has not served either in Cabinet or in the Ziu before.
