The February 2019 Vothetrian general election took place on 28 February 2019 to elect 614 members of the Unterhaus. It was the first general election held that year, the second being in June, and was the second general election held in Vothetria. The snap election was called shortly after the Valentines Day Massacre as a result of 5 Conservative backbench rebels voting against two motions to go to war with Faethalria against Kostoria-Obertonia.

The then Prime Minister Lupe Juentines gained a stronger majority in the Unterhaus and her third motion to war was successful. Both Labour and the Unionists lost seats, and it was the first election where the VWP gained seats.
