Great color choice for the "tossup/leans runoff" category, Larry.

I have no way of knowing if the section of CESRA applying to votes ineligibly cast in regional Senate elections applies to solarstorm's case because he deleted his first ballot. No one seems to have a quote or a screenshot of it. CESRA requires me to determine if he "explicitly" cast his original vote in a Senate race for which he is not qualified to vote, which I can't do without access to the original text of his ballot.

A friendly reminder

Please keep in mind that you have 72 hours in which to cast your vote in federal elections, and that there is a 20-minute period after voting in which editing your ballot is permitted. A sample ballot is provided in the first post of the thread as an aid to casting your ballot - voting can and should be as simple as copy, paste, fill in your preferences, and check over the ballot for mistakes. You have no excuse for casting a ballot which contains errors or does not accurately reflect your preferences.

That said, thank you all for a respectably attended and well-fought election.

homelycooking, SoFE

A bit of advice, Napoleon: if you're going to make a big claim or accusation, you'll save quite a lot of everyone's time if you make it specific, clear and direct. We all have better things to do with our lives than trying to divine what the hell it is that internet Napoleon is talking about.

DO NOT VOTE UNTIL 0:00 EST/1:00 EDT. YOUR VOTE WILL NOT BE COUNTED IF YOU VOTE BEFORE 0:00 EST/1:00 EDT.

REPUBLIC OF ATLASIA - In Dave We Trust
Official Ballot

This special election is held in accordance with Article V of the Constitution and with the Consolidated Electoral System Reform Act. The regular election begins at 0:00 EST, Friday, October 24, and ends at 0:00 EST, Monday, October 27.

DO NOT EDIT OR DELETE THE POST CONTAINING YOUR BALLOT IN ANY WAY AFTER 20 MINUTES OF ITS BEING POSTED OR YOUR VOTE WILL BE INVALIDATED

The act of campaigning within the election booth is strictly forbidden and will render void any votes made by those who campaign. The act of campaigning is considered to include, but is not limited to, strong attempts to compel others either to vote or not to vote for one or multiple candidates, or other related activities that could reasonably be construed as a direct attempt to influence how future voters cast their ballots.

Place the numbers 1, 2, etc. in the space provided beside the candidates who you wish to vote for to designate your order of preference for these candidates.  If any other mark or attempt to order the candidates is made, the Department of Forum Affairs will make every effort to deduce voter intent from the content of the ballot, but the warning must be issued that failure to follow the above instructions may result in the invalidation of your ballot in the event of an inability to discern voter intent.  You are an eligible voter in general if you were registered to vote on or before the proper date, and if you made 10 posts in any location within the Atlas Forum in the 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the regular election. In other words, if your name appears on the Census list, you can presume you are eligible.  

In the event that you do not support any listed candidate or that you support one or many candidates that are not listed in addition to those that are, you may write in other candidates and include them in your list of preferences.  Space is provided for one such write-in, but as many can be listed as you wish.  In the event that you do not support any listed candidate, and do not wish to write in any candidate, you may place an X or a 1 beside "None of the above", and only beside "None of the above".  In the event that an X or a 1 appears beside "None of the above" on a ballot, all other marks or numbers will be ignored.  It is not permissible under current election law to vote for both "None of the above" and other candidates.

Note that voting begins at midnight EST and ends in exactly 72 hours.

Names of candidates follow in alphabetical order.

Hi Dave,

I discovered the full name of Pat Buchanan's 2000 running mate in Massachusetts, who is listed only as "Higgins" in your results page.

He is William J. Higgins Sr., of Northborough, MA, a placeholder candidate who remained on the ballot after the Buchanan and Hagelin factions split at the acrimonious 2000 Reform Party convention. I stumbled upon that obscure fact in this 2010 article from the Worcester News-Telegram.

At one of his Christmas concerts she was wearing a broach with that symbol on it and I mentioned at that time that the bass clef gets no respect.  She giggled, but I was serious.  It is clearly an underrepresented register, and I think it's nice to see somebody toss a little nod in its direction from time to time. 


Well, it certainly isn't as bad as the obscurity reserved for violists and their alto clef.



I play an instrument that is typically written for in the bass clef and I don't even like it. Unless the sheet music is very clearly written or engraved, it becomes difficult to read notes that are written on four and five ledger lines above the staff. If I'm going to be playing any extended passage above C4, I'd much rather see it in tenor or treble clef.

I do wonder if the last name "Foley" might be partially to blame. It really is extraordinary how many times that last name has come up in stories of scandal or depravity, especially right now in Connecticut. Consider:

Tom Foley, Speaker of the House sued to overturn term limit legislation, defeated for reelection,
Mark Foley, pedophile, resigned from Congress in disgrace,
Brian and Lisa Wilson-Foley, illegally hired, and lied about hiring, John Rowland as a campaign advisor,
Mark Foley, ran a porno/exploitation/slasher film business while employed as principal of a middle school in Granby, CT. He was found out last week in a front page article in the Hartford Courant.

None of these people are related to Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, but voters may be making subliminal associations.
