The Senbatsu Election (選抜総選挙) (also known as Senbatsu Sousenkyo) is an annual event where fans can vote for their favorite AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, NGT48, STU48, or Team Kaigai member, analogous to a popularity contest. The members who receive the most votes are announced on the day of the election, but votes are submitted beforehand.
Currently, the 80 members who have the most votes are then grouped: Senbatsu (#1~#16), Undergirls (#17~#32), Next Girls (#33~48), Future Girls (#49~#64) and Upcoming Girls (#65~#80). Each of these five groups releases their own song and music video for the following single.

JKT48 have their own Senbatsu Election, known as "Pemilihan member". SNH48 also have their own Senbatsu Election. MNL48 also have their own Senbatsu Election.
