Governors will be doing their own elections.  This is because some Governors also have propositions they want on the ballot, also the rules for Governor elections might be different- i.e., they might not have preferential voting.

If you have a debate thread open for your particular Senate race, you may answer this question there.  As a person who has been out of work for some time, I am very interested in all Senate candidates response to this question.

What economic policies should the federal government pursue to stimulate job creation?

Oh, I guess you mean the "Anybody but Reaganfan" thread.  Thats perhaps just a tad bit over the top, but far worse things have been done in this forum.
4280  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:I Proudly Endorse Reaganfan! on: August 17, 2004, 10:19:10 am
Clay, exactly where is this "negative attitude towards Reaganfan coming from those who support htmldon"Huh   I can't find it anywhere!

Here is Nation's endorsement of Htmldon:
I would like to reaffirm my strongest support for Governor Htmldon -- he is one of a kind, and a fine Governor. Reaganfan needs to learn when to quit. Vote Don for a better everything.

Certainly not an overly negative statement about Reaganfan.  Here is my own endorsement of Htmldon:
My party is not making an endorsement in the Southeast Governor's race, but I personally endorse Htmldon.  Smiley
I didn't even mention Reaganfan's name.  The only other endorsement of Htmldon I see comes from the UAC Party, who merely lists the candidates they endorse for each race.

The only negative statement I see regarding Reaganfan came from KEmporer:
It is time for a change. Reaganfan for governor.

You are so dumb....
This was not an endorsement of Htmldon, and was also prompted by a statement made by Reaganfan himself.  I tend to agree that Reaganfan's statement "its time for a change" in the thread where 57opinions accuses Htmldon of homosexuality, was rather dumb.

Given these unlikely scenarios, I'm not going to vote for a sure loser.  I would vote for my favorite from among the candidates who stood a chance of winning.  In situations 1 and 2, only one candidate stands a chance, so it doesn't matter.  My choices would be in this order: Kerry, Nader, Badnarik, Bush, Peroutka.  Thus my votes would be:

1. Kerry
2. Kerry
3. Kerry
4. Badnarik
5. Kerry
6. Nader
7. Nader
8. Bush
9. Nader
10. Kerry

Was I supposed to be angry about this?

If it were a serious threat, that would be one thing, and if that were the case I would agree with you all.  But this is obviously not a serious threat.  You are giving it more attention than it deserves.
4283  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election Campaign / Re:The Irony of Clinton Stumping for Kerry on: August 16, 2004, 06:11:34 pm
Maybe the Clintons really do want what's best for the party and for the country...not just whats best for Hillary's political career.
4284  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Some Thoughts on: August 16, 2004, 05:43:27 pm
Everybody calm down, take a deep breath.....

There.  Feel better now?
4285  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Do you want to be a GM? on: August 16, 2004, 05:21:31 pm
Too late States, Ernest already quit.
4286  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:anyone for Senate! on: August 16, 2004, 05:14:44 pm
You are just a barrel of laughs, Ernest.  Smiley
4287  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:The Combined Home State Voting Reform Amendment on: August 16, 2004, 04:55:52 pm
If that's the case, Mr. PPT, I would suggest this be put to public poll.

Regardless of whether this becomes part of the constitution before Friday, I intend to conduct the midterm Senate elections as if it were- by having voting open for 72 hours, and honoring any request for absentee voting (I don't think there will be any).
4288  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:I'm officially withdrawing from the Senate race on: August 16, 2004, 04:43:43 pm
Yes, that's true, anyone still could do a write-in campaign.
4289  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Register Thread on: August 16, 2004, 11:20:32 am
Or it's just possible that you really do belong in:

- Democratic Party (center-left social, center-left economic)
4290  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:United Atlas Centrist Party Endorsements on: August 16, 2004, 10:11:14 am
My party is not making an endorsement in the Southeast Governor's race, but I personally endorse Htmldon.  Smiley
4291  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Democratic Party Endorsements for Senate on: August 16, 2004, 09:31:01 am
PlatypeanArchcow has not posted in the forum since August 3rd, that is nearly 2 weeks now.  If the candidate does not make any posts before Wednesday, I am going to reccomend to my party that we withdraw our endorsement.  I would hate to see District 5 elect a Senator who doesn't show up to be sworn in.
4292  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:I'm officially withdrawing from the Senate race on: August 16, 2004, 08:15:44 am
"All candidates must register their name seven days before the election to be placed on the ballot..."  The constitution says nothing about a deadline for having your name removed from the ballot.
4293  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:For Semi-Live Results of this Week's Election... on: August 16, 2004, 07:35:36 am
Exactly.  The second set of numbers shown should be the results of the runoff vote, if there is any- not the number of second preference votes.

Example:
A gets 5 votes, B gets 3 votes, C gets 2 votes.
C gets eliminated, those two voters put B as their second choice.  This results in a tie: A gets 5, B gets 5.

This would be displayed thus:

A- 5 (5)  50%(50%)  WINNER
B- 3 (5)  30%(50%)
C- 2 (0)  20%(0%)

Of course, A ends up winning the tie in this example, due to getting more first preference votes.

Between my responsibilities as SOFA and Democratic Party chairman, I think my plate is full enough.  Smiley   Thanks anyway.
4295  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:I'm officially withdrawing from the Senate race on: August 16, 2004, 07:17:24 am
Well, the way I see it, the filing deadline applies to getting your name put on the ballot- not having it taken off.  Smiley
4296  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Register Thread on: August 16, 2004, 07:00:40 am
Welcome aboard, Demoteen04!


This has gotten just a little confusing, with two register threads.  This thread is linked in the Forum Headquarters, the other thread is stickied.  Could Gustaf and StevenNick agree on one thread?  Thanks.
4297  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:For Semi-Live Results of this Week's Election... on: August 15, 2004, 09:11:32 pm
OOOHHH, I just love it!!!  Cheesy

So how is this going to work- will you be constantly updating the site, all weekend long?

You're missing a few candidates on your lists.  We still (unfortunately) have 57opinions running in 2A, Al hasn't withdrawn from 3B, and Josh22 is running in 4B.

Another (minor) problem with this is, it looks like it only takes first-choice votes into account, and might incorrectly be calling someone a winner.  In spite of that- great job!!!
4298  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:The Region - Game Moderator Issues on: August 15, 2004, 05:55:01 pm
We need a new GM!  Ernest is going to be a tough act to follow.

Well, the last time I nominated someone for this job, that person didn't work out the greatest.  But I'm going to make a suggestion, anyways.  What do you all think about Niles Caulder for the job?
4299  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Absentee voting on: August 15, 2004, 02:04:11 pm
I think everyone knows who the candidates are (or at least they should know).  Smiley  It's likely that no one will say they need to vote absentee, anyways.
4300  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Absentee voting on: August 15, 2004, 11:59:02 am
The Combined Home State Voting Reform Amendment appears likely to pass (though whether this will happen before the election remains questionable).  Terms of that amendment are:

1. All federal weekend elections will take place over the course of 72 hours encompassing the entirety of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Forum Time.

2. If any voter will be unable to vote in a federal election during the time alotted, he or she may request to advance vote at any time between the end of the filing deadline for candidates and the beginning of the election. During this time there will be a specified, sticky thread set up for the purpose of informing forum citizens of their right to advance vote. Advanced voting will take place via e-mail. The e-mail vote must be sent to the Secretary of Forum Affairs, the Attorney General and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.



Does anyone need to vote absentee?  If so, post here.
