The Galactic Republic Chancery election of 36 BBY was an election that resulted in Finis Valorum winning a second term as Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic.

As previously, Valorum was supported by the Core faction of senators. Despite the fact that many senators doubted Valorum's competency, he easily won re-election due to the facts that his enemies considered him easily controllable and there were no real opposing candidates. However, many of those considering opposing Valorum considered backing Palpatine.

Perhaps because of this, it was shortly after the election that Valorum and Palpatine began a friendship, with Palpatine becoming a de facto advisor to the Chancellor.
