In this hypothetical election, Duke/Matt would have actually won outright in the first round easily, securing a victory in a crowded field.

Stop Weekly Special Elections Act

1. The Vacancy Mitigation Act is hereby repealed.

2. The Vacancy Filling Act is hereby repealed.

3. Vacancies for Northeast Representatives shall hereby be filled by gubernatorial appointment for the remainder of the Assembly session the vacancy falls in.

x Talleyrand

Some relief from our constant special elections is provided here. In the future, we may still see special elections for the earlier part of an assembly term though, but this law will increase the importance of gubernatorial elections in the Northeast.

To increase the number of competitive elections, I've proposed an amendment that would force gubernatorial elections to coincide with all assembly elections, so we would have two month gubernatorial terms instead.

I am completely in support of this bill. Police departments should not be allowed to take easy pickings off of criminal or civil forfeiture, and it is only fair that the vast majority of those possessions be transferred to the public indirectly via the regional government.

As for giving appropriations to local police departments, I think we've already done enough by enforcing the camera policy on them; it is up to local governments to figure out how to provide for their police departments. The Northeast government's duty is to regulate them, not give them blank checks. Wink

The result so far on this one don't seem to leave much room for doubt.

In this election, Matt/Maxwell would have won the first round, but narrowly lost the second round due to awful preference flows to Nix/DemPGH, a situation very similar to what actually happened.

Yes, I'm trying to find this too.

In this election, Cathcon/Spamage would have won the first round, but due to a poor performance in lower preferences, would have been eventually defeated by Marokai/Duke for the presidency.

Does this clear up any doubts?

FTR, I'm proposing it as an amendment.

The biggest what-if about this election was the hypothetical Tmth/Scott candidacy. That would have really shaken things up, and quite likely led to MarDuke's defeat.
17  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE1: Stop Weekly Special Elections Act (Debating) on: September 14, 2014, 08:26:57 pm
I think it's pretty much clear that vacancies in the Assembly refers to Representatives, and not the Lt. Governorship or the Speakership.

An apology in advance for last minute write-ins who won't be included in these polls; we're looking for a clearer view of what happened in these elections, and to include too many options would clutter them up.

In this re-do, Jbrase/NC Yankee would have won a plurality in the first round and likely won the second round against either Napoleon/Nathan or Snowstalker/Redalgo, due to the tight nature of preference flows from the last election and what people have expressed here.

Would have gone with 5 or 6, but he's let his dislike of Coakley put the MA Gubernatorial election as R>50%, so I'll got with 7.

I also think he's a bit too bullish on some gubernatorial elections (e.g. IL, CT, GA, etc.).

Statement on October

I would like to take this opportunity to state that I will not seek re-election this October. I think the Northeast has been very active under my tenure, and I am grateful for that. It is my hope that the reforms and laws that we have passed over the last two months have bettered the region, and the game itself, but I do not feel that I could maintain a solid level of activity in another term at this time.

I would like to thank Senator Bore, Speaker SWE, Lt. Governors Napoleon, Dr. Cynic, Matt, Representatives Rpryor, Sawx, and last but not least, Dallasfan, for assisting me in my time here, and I look forward to completing this session in the Northeast Assembly.

My activity in Atlasia will continue, and I am sure I will run for or take another office soon enough, but it won't be the governorship again this time around.

Thanks, Talleyrand

Any questions/concerns, anyone?

Any chance we can get a rider that actively seeks to destroy poison ivy? Grin

Well, since it's a native plant, I'd have to oppose that on principle, but if people want to attach a rider to combat invasive species or something like that, I would support it.
