The 1912 Creeperian general election occurred on Wednesday, 1 October 1912, in accordance with the constitution of the State of Creeperopolis. All 100 seats of the parliament and all 19 captain generals (governors of departments).

The election resulted in a landslide victory for the Creeperian Conservative Coalition (CCC), which won a 70 seat supermajority. The election has since been widely believed to have been rigged in favor of the conservatives, being effectively denounced as fraudulent by historians and political scientists. Evidence suggested that hundreds of thousands of votes for the National Liberal Party (PLN), the Creeperian Socialist Party (PSC), and the Creeperian Social Communist Party (PCSC), were either counted as a vote for the Catholic Royalist Party (PRC) and the National Conservative Party (PCN) instead, were labeled as "blank" or "invalid," or simply not counted at all.

The outcome of the election resulted in widespread protests against Antonio Sáenz Heredia, the elected prime minister, demanding his resignation and for new elections. The protests lasted around three months with Sáenz Heredia suppressing protests against his government with the Civil Police, the Creeperian Army, and the Falange Creeperiano, the paramilitary wing of the PRC. Sáenz Heredia remained as prime minister for his second term until 1917.

The Creeperian Initiative has subsequently declared that the results of the election were legitimate in 1953. Until his death in 1957, Sáenz Heredia continued to deny any allegations of rigging the election.


Electoral system

The 1912 general election was conducted with a first-past-the-post voting system, with the candidate with the most votes winning their respective election. The voting system applied to all elections.
