This paper aims to analyse the current “state of the art” of the electoral legislation for the Piedmont Region. Almost twenty years after the reform of the Title V of the Italian Constitution, in fact, Piedmont is one of the four Italian Regions that still have not enacted an own electoral law. In the light of this, specific consideration will be devoted to – primarily – State electoral legislation applying to Piedmont, also as to its compatibility with the Italian Constitution. At the same time, the ceaseless electoral litigation which has been dragging on in the Region since 2010 will be expounded so as to highlight the alarming situation of the Piedmontese democracy. In the end, some brief considerations will be drawn on a few recent proposals for a new regional electoral law (Piemontellum).
