The Provinciale Staten or Staten (States-Provincial) is the provincial parliament in each of the Netherlands’ 12 provinces. The total of 564 seats are filled through elections once every four years in which all Dutch nationals over the age of 18 residing in that particular province are eligible to vote. The number of seats per provincial parliament depends on the number of inhabitants and varies between 39 and 55.

The Netherlands uses a party-list proportional representation system, in which voters vote for a specific candidate linked to a political party using an electoral list. The votes for the specific candidates are added up and determine the number of seats per party as well as the occupants of these seats.
