Well guys, some of you might have seen this type of TL before. Basically, I write a scenario, and have a list of candidates to choose from.  You vote over a set period of time for the candidates. The winners progress to the next round, where the winner there is elected Pres. I then write a summary of the next two years, with you then voting for Congressional Midterms, then we do the next Presidential election.

Is anybody interested? I actually need some help thinking of an election year to start in. I want it to be before the '90s. Wink

I'll do it! I say use 1976 - the election that historians will most likely compare to 2012 Wink

This is like your Civil War timeline! That had potential but died out due to lazy people. Tongue
I'd do It. I like 1968, and I have to be George Romney. Cheesy

Well, that's not exactly how it works. Wink

What happens is, I give the candidates, and people vote for them (kind of like a Survivor), and then I write the next part of the time line and so on.

So, basically, you get to control the TL. Wink

BTW, if a candidate is listed under more than one party, it's perfectly fine for vote for them in each party they're listed under.

Republican nominee:
William H. Seward

Northern Democratic nominee:
Joseph Lane*

Democratic nomination:
Stephen A. Douglas

Constitutional Union nomination:
Sam Houston**

*Seeing as he was tied with Douglas, but Douglas also had the support of another party, I gave it to Lane
**Since it was a tie with Bell, I broke it in favor of Houston.

Running Mates:

Seward selects Salmon Chase as his running mate.
Lane selects James Guthrie.
Douglas selects Andrew Johnson.
Houston selects Edward Everett.

General election
Alright, vote for one of the following tickets:

Seward/Chase (Republican)
Lane/Guthrie (Northern Democratic)
Douglas/Johnson (Democratic)
Houston/Everett (Constitutional Union)

Voting lasts one day.

I like Seward/Chase the most, but Houston/Everett will make a better timeline so I vote Houston/Everett.

Well, I'll try to make something, but seeing as Houston is in a party that exited for just over a year, it might be difficult.
