1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: CT State Senator elected solely on Working Families line on: February 27, 2015, 06:59:14 pm
Working Families Party members hold municipal board seats in both Hartford and Bridgeport. In heavily-Democratic cities, Connecticut's minority representation laws often end up reserving seats for the WFP in such places rather than for the Republicans.

Keep in mind also that this was a poorly-attended special election on a brutally cold Tuesday in February, in which highly-motivated voters turned out for their third-party candidate and most everyone else stayed home. Amidst considerable vote-splitting, 1,309 votes elected a Senator who will represent about 100,000 people.

Often the first round is the final round. Not always.

You have nothing to apologize for. Atlasia is indebted to you for your service.

In practice that language is intended to provide for a range of possible times during which a voting booth can be opened. The general custom, one that I've adhered to now for well over three years, is for the election to begin as close to 0:00 on Friday as possible (while still beginning on Thursday), so that the 72-hour election period encompasses as much of the weekend as possible.

Barring some last-minute changes, here's our candidate list for this weekend's election:

President/VP

Maxwell/Dallasfan (DR)
Bore/Bacon King (Labor-TPP)
JCL/Devin (Fed)

Northeast Senate

Talleyrand (Labor)
Matt from VT (TPP)
cinyc (ind.)

IDS Senate

Hagrid (ind.)
NC Yankee (Fed)

Mideast Senate

Windjammer (Labor)
Spiral (DR)

Midwest Senate

TNF (Labor)
Dereich (Fed)
Cassius (Fed)

Pacific Senate

Cranberry (TPP)

No amount of good derived from the execution of a thousand of the most vile, remorseless criminals could possibly compensate for the horror of having executed one innocent man.
13  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Office of JCL on: February 13, 2015, 01:42:01 pm
So it would have to be Poirot as your runningmate.

JCL must first assent to having Poirot as his running mate before he can be placed on the ballot. He could also replace his running mate until Monday night if Poirot chooses to drop out of the race.
14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Office of JCL on: February 13, 2015, 01:25:01 pm
Devin did not declare his candidacy before the deadline of midnight last night. I'm afraid that the law does not permit me to place your ticket on the ballot.

Quote
3. The candidacy declaration deadline for full tickets of a Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidate to declare shall be seven days before the earliest possible commencement of the election.
15  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Candidate Declaration Thread on: February 12, 2015, 08:16:34 pm
This running mate of yours has less than four hours in which to declare his candidacy. You can change running mates until Monday night if your declared running mate leaves the ticket, however.

Quote
The candidacy declaration deadline for full tickets of a Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidate to declare shall be seven days before the earliest possible commencement of the election. However, should the Vice-Presidential candidate withdraw his candidacy, then the Presidential candidate may nominate a new Vice-Presidential candidate up to seventy-two hours before the commencement of the election.

18  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Electoral Reform Amendment (Debating) on: February 07, 2015, 02:22:55 pm
I have many questions and concerns, and honestly I'm disappointed by what appears to be such a poorly drafted piece of legislation from the "Commission on Electoral Reform" -  a body of which I had no knowledge until today.

1. What happens if the Senate repeatedly rejects the commission's plan, to the point where a new map is not adopted before the next election?
2. What procedure is in place to govern the breaking of a 3-3 tie in a vote by the commission? Is there a quorum for holding a vote in the commission? What role does the chairman have in the commission's proceedings? How, exactly, is the commission supposed to work and deliberate? "Once they have come up with" is a spectacularly vague piece of language.
3. What does the commission do if the population of Atlasia is not divisible by five, or if a state must be split between districts for the sake of population equality? The proposed language requires that districts "must be equal in population" - there appears to be no qualification of that mandate.
4. Why are there no restrictions on contiguity? Can the commission draw a district comprised of a dozen non-contiguous parts?
5. I can't tell if the commission is intended to meet and redistrict once per year ("becoming valid at the August elections") or once every two Class B election cycles ("shall meet for three months after every other election for Class B Seats").
6. Who are "the representatives of the Governors"? Can a governor act as his own "representative"?

I'm not opposed to working with the Senate to take on new responsibilities for the Department, and I apologize if I come off as unnecessarily officious here. But since Atlasia's principal elections officer is only now giving his unsolicited opinion on this matter, he regrets to inform the Senate and the "Commission on Electoral Reform" that he is opposed to the adoption of this amendment as currently drafted.

"The Waldo Moment" was, in spite of its flaws, appropriately unkind to the Liberal Democrats.

In fairness, that seat was safe Tory, with Labour typically a distant second, and the Lib Dems barely registering.  Those kinds of seats are fairly common in the UK, especially now.

I don't think anyone mentions the Liberal Democrat by name until the returning officer at the count does in the final moments of the episode.

"Vote for Monroe or Harris or UKIP, or, I dunno, even that LibDem guy!"

"You're in third place, mate - you overtook that LibDem prick!"

I withdraw from the Senate Race because I am not even eligible. I only have like 80ish posts. Sorry. And My Ideas are super crazy.

i mean, if my reading is correct, this isn't even true. you should definitely ask bacon king or someone.

Yes, we're aware that there's nothing in the Constitution to prohibit him from running.

If you were to win election as Senator, you would likely be Constitutionally prohibited from taking office.

Quote
2. No Person shall be a Senator who has not attained 200 or more posts, whose account is not at least 60 days old, and is not a registered voter in the Region that they represent.

What ? I did not read this. I apologize. Where can I read this ? Stupid me.

It's in the Atlasian Constitution. You can find it in the "wiki" tab at the top of the Atlas page heading.
