If there would be inter-regional regions each electing one legislator, why don't we have those use FPTP? The at-large election could still be done by PR-STV, but FPTP could make sense for elections of just one seat.


I admit that headache of calculating the PR-STV numbers for the ongoing election is part of the motivation for this

If we did elect everyone at once when would it be done? Would there be full elections every month taking up both normal class 1 and class 2 elections or would we just elect people less often?

Secondly, it's funny you mention the flag.  Last night I opened my copy of Adobe Flash and started designing potential flag designs for me to introduce if I'm elected to the Legislature.  My idea was to combine Southern state flags (stars, stripes, Saints symbols, TX lone stars, etc.) into one design, but I couldn't come up with something that represents all the states.  However, I'd desperately like to see the current flag replaced, as I feel it is way too dreary for us.

What, you don't like THIS?

Absolutely shocking.

I hope you'll put some of your ideas here before bringing them to the legislature, I'd like to get public discussion on what kind of flag we should have.

Hello Southerners and the less fortunate! This is your beneficent Emperor calling you to come together to provide your ideas and your suggestions on changing our Constitution. Is replacing our flag your thing? Want to end our Imperial titles? Or maybe you just want to change our voting rules. Well here is the place to talk about it!

In the past, people have tried to make threads for individual issues like amendment reform or changing when we vote but they ALWAYS end the same way. They peter out and nothing ever changes. Not now. I pledge to personally introduce and fight for The People to get a chance to vote for most if not all of the proposals made in this thread. So lets have at it!
259  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / IDS September Regional Election on: September 22, 2013, 05:01:37 pm
Voting starts immediately and ends at 6:00 PM EST, Wednesday, September 25th. Voting shall use proportional representation through the single transferable vote (PR-STV).

A voter's ballot is valid only if the voter:

(1) is registered with the Atlasian Registrar General as a voter of a Southern state during the entire time that the poll is open;
(2) makes only a single post in that election thread;
(3) does not edit or delete the post more than one hour after the post has been made; and
(4) clearly identifies the contest in which a vote is intended to be applied, except when there is only one contest on the ballot.


Official Ballot:

Please vote for the candidates in your preferred order:

Imperial Legislature:
[ ] Hashemite (NM'AM'-FL) (i)
[ ] Jack Enderman (FED-FL)
[ ] Scott (PRO-AR)
[ ] Write-In:________

Over the last few weeks the IDS has been slow. This is fine. A temporary slowdown at the start of the school year isn't a sign of a dying region. I myself have had real life impose on time that would otherwise be spent in Atlasia. However, in this case I have made a serious mistake. By not paying the due amount of attention to the election dates, I have allowed harm to come to my region. This is not acceptable behavior for the Emperor of the IDS. From today onward, I swear to be vigilant and to do my region right. However, I feel that this could end up being a positive. A mistake of this caliber can rejuvenate a region, and knowing the quality of my subjects I KNOW we'll use this as a shot in the arm to get us back and better than ever.

Since the booth DOES need to be opened, I'll be doing that at 6 EST to allow any last-minute entries into the race.

No
263  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: Ratification Amendment on: September 19, 2013, 10:22:03 pm
By a vote of 3 to 8, this amendment fails in the IDS.
264  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: September 17, 2013, 10:39:42 am
Hey, congratulations on electing a speaker guys! I just wanted to remind you that the Freedom of Empire act was never voted on; debate is technically still ongoing if y'all want to talk about that.
265  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Senate Bill: Fix the Regions Amendment (Debating) on: September 17, 2013, 03:14:27 am
Sorry, I've been meaning to respond to this but life has gotten in the way.

This is an issue, however, where you may believe that some of my inexperience is revealed, but you can ask Sirnick, Dereich, or Lumine for more clarification, as we all agreed on the solution.

The other benefit of reregistration that we discussed is that it allows us to redraw the map without looking at current populations. Making all this effort to solve regional inactivity won't really matter if we create a monster Midwest-Pacific region that ends up just as inactive as the Pacific and Midwest are now. Even if the zombies DO come back, they might not all be focused in the same places, while active people would also have more incentive to spread out hopefully balancing out activity levels between the new regions.
266  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: Ratification Amendment on: September 17, 2013, 02:58:05 am
Nay
267  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Regional Consolidation: Where to draw the lines? on: September 17, 2013, 02:57:03 am
Can we leave Canada out of this? Canada is a hideous, ugly thing that makes every map worse.

269  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / IDS Voting Booth: Ratification Amendment on: September 11, 2013, 10:16:39 pm
Ok, lets try this again:


Quote
Ratification Amendment
AN AMENDMENT

To guarantee that the process for amending the Atlasian Constitution remains open and democratic, the following amendment is passed by the Senate and sent to the regions for ratification.

1. The Seventeenth Amendment is hereby repealed.

2. Article VII, Section 1, shall be restored to its earlier text: is amended to read as follows:

Quote
The Senate, whenever two-thirds of its number shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of this Constitution when ratified by a majority of the People voting in public polls in three-quarters of the Regions. Such votes shall last for exactly one week and shall be administered by the Governor of the Region or other officer as the Law of the Region may provide Secretary of Federal Elections. Citizens will cast their vote by public post.

7 days to vote, vote either aye, nay or abstain.
270  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Regional Executives: Ratification Amendment on Your Desks on: September 10, 2013, 09:48:09 pm
So do you think its a problem? I could always take down the booth I put up and make a new one.
271  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: BK/AG (D-GA) 4 PREZ: Set Your Happening Level to "It's" on: September 09, 2013, 05:57:11 pm
As a Federalist I can never ever endorse this ticket but as a Southerner I say godspeed good Georgians. Best of luck in your effort to show Atlasia Southern greatness.
272  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: A New Series-The Elections of Vonrittnerland, 1785 on: September 09, 2013, 12:29:20 pm
Hm... both parties seem to be very mixed bags.

Whom would I support if I support the Constitution, like both leaders because of their efforts, want a more urban based economy (which probably isn't that mercantilistic as I understand it), don't like the government's "aristocratic" approach advocate democracy and also strict neutrality concerning European affairs?

In this time period an urban party would have been mercantilistic and focused those who produce goods for export. And this new country is too small and too new to be strictly neutral, to survive it needs friends.
273  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Office of IDS Emperor Dereich on: September 08, 2013, 11:12:48 am
I hereby appoint JerryArkansas to the legislature.
274  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Referendum: Fixer Amendment on: September 08, 2013, 11:11:08 am
With 6 ayes this amendment passes.
275  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: IDS Voting Booth: The Committee Approval Requirement for Impeachment Amendment on: September 08, 2013, 11:09:13 am
With 5 ayes and 3 nays this amendment passes in the IDS.
