The Parliament has 30 members, who are elected every four years by secret ballot under a system of proportional representation. The voting age is 18, but the right to vote and stand for election is also dependent on possession of right of domicile in Åland.

Åland’s political parties are independent from parties outside Åland, but have similar ideological foundations as their counterparts in Finland and other countries.
