The April 1986 General Election was the third democratic election to be held in Talossa. The election began on 10 March 1986/VII and was held earlier than scheduled so to resolve a conflict between King Ben and Danihel Lauriéir.

According to the Big History, the election was ran under a ranked choice ballot, rather than the "one man, one vote" system adopted for the previous ones.
