I count 47 people showing up to vote so far, out of 120 eligible voters.  Thats 39%.  Not bad.
4277  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:For Semi-Live Results of this Week's Election... on: August 20, 2004, 06:52:25 pm

I'm sure there will be more votes...

Oh yeah, so am I.  I'm just sayin'....
4278  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:For Semi-Live Results of this Week's Election... on: August 20, 2004, 06:39:27 pm
Okay kids, strange situation in district 1.  If this were the final result, I'm not sure how it would be resolved.

Current first preference votes:
Keystone Phil 4
Handzus26 3
.Andrew 3

The question becomes which of Handzus26 or .Andrew to eliminate first.  The way this should be resolved, is to count the second preferences of Phil's voters.  However, only one person who voted for Phil listed a second preference, and that was a write-in vote for himself.

If we eliminate Handzus26, the final result is:
.Andrew 5
Keystone Phil 4
.Andrew wins.

If we eliminate .Andrew, the final result is:
Keystone Phil 5
Handzus26 4
Keystone Phil wins.

My inclination would be to declare Keystone Phil the winner, but we might need to involve the Court.

Phil and RReagan just got another vote each Fritz......

This brings us to a 3-way tie in D1 (3 votes all) and a 2-way tie between Akno and Reagan in 2A (4 each).

As a purely objective observer, both Hughento and Texasgurl have gone over the edge attacking each other.  Stop it, both of you.

This is all happening too fast.  Smiley
4282  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:For Semi-Live Results of this Week's Election... on: August 20, 2004, 02:34:08 pm
Update-

D1- Andrew 3, Handzus26 3, Keystone Phil 2.  Neither of the voters for Phil have a second preference, so it remains a tie.

D2A- Akno21 4, RReagan4EVER 3, MAS117 1.

D2B- No change.  Umengus 2, Bono 1, Migrendel 1.

D3- Texasgurl 5, Demerpdan 4.

D4- No change.  Harry 3, Josh22 1.

D5- Mr. Hobbes 3, PlatypeanArchcow and Steven Nick both have 2.  
If this were the final result, to determine who gets eliminated first, we examine the race without Mr. Hobbes (by counting his second choices).  This tie-breaking exercise results in: StevenNick 5, PlatypeanArchcow 2.  So PlatypeanArchcow is eliminated.
Final result: Mr. Hobbes 4, StevenNick 3.

we r a senate not a house therefore u address the president not the speaker


Ur an ass hole.

You're not going to win many votes making comments like that.
4289  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:WRITE IN MAS117 FOR SENATE 2A on: August 20, 2004, 01:22:11 am
MAS117, you know that being from NJ, you can also vote in 2B?

Your party endorsed Umengus.  Go vote for him, OK?  Cheesy
4290  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re:Official Senate Elections Voting Booth- August 20-22 on: August 20, 2004, 12:29:36 am
Your first preference is obviously a joke.

Your second preference is registered in a state outside of your district, so is invalid.

Your third and fourth preferences will be counted as your first and second preferences.

Probably not but I wish they did. Then America would have a chance fo take over English Canada.

hahaha!

Which brings up an interesting question.  If Quebec DID secede, are there any other provinces that might think joining the USA was a good idea?  Lets hear from you Canadians out there.

I agree, the Dems aren't getting the Senate this year.  I think the best we can hope for is an even swap- IL and AK for SC and GA.

4296  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Election Predictions on: August 19, 2004, 10:08:30 pm
Look at your 2A regisration. whats going on there

Akno21 already won the same district once, I think he can do it again.
4297  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Election Predictions on: August 19, 2004, 10:03:24 pm
These are predictions, not endorsements.

Senate D1- Handzus26
Senate D2A- Akno21
Senate D2B- Umengus
Senate D3- tossup, too close to call
Senate D4- Harry
Senate D5- StevenNick
Midwest Gov-- ILikeVerin
Southeast Gov- Htmldon
Pacific Gov- Wildcard
Pacific Lt. Gov- King

I took another look at voter registration in D1, and it looks like Keystone Phil might actually have the edge.  I revise my prediction for D1 to Keystone Phil.  I hope I'm wrong!  Smiley
(Phil's not a bad guy, though- just don't like his politics)
4298  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Election Predictions on: August 19, 2004, 06:37:24 pm
Even if PBrunsel does vote for himself, I don't see him winning.  We only have 9 registered voters in the re-drawn region.  PBrunsel will get votes from me, WMS, and himself.  ILikeVerin will get votes from Hughento, BRTD, Gustaf, and himself.  The other two aren't likely to vote.  ILV wins 4-3.
4299  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Election Predictions on: August 19, 2004, 06:25:10 pm
Naw, I wuldn't be surprised if I lose this weekend... honestly!

PBrunsel is the Ronald Reagan of Atlasia... I even like him with his policies >P

If he votes for himself, maybe.  But he's never actually said that he is candidate, so I don't know that he will.
