I'll propose this as an alternative:

2) The following is added to Section 8 as Clause 6: "The SoFE may post notice that candidate declarations for a federal election are open, at a date two months or greater before the earliest possible commencement of that election. In this case candidate declarations made before the date of this notice will not be valid."

" But freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order."

I'm a little surprised the sponsor doesn't welcome the opportunity to make this bill workable.

then how are these issues adressed?

4) if the election administrator allows someone on the ballot who declared more than two months prior, can they be sued?
5)if we are going to do this we at least need to make it absolutely clear to everyone what the start date is to declare for every single race at the regional and federal level.

How does the sponsor view the amendment?

Just for the record, I consider "Reasonable effort" to mean looking at all declarations since the last election (2 months) and I have no plans to look for declarations before this period. This has been a personal policy of mine since the last time I held this office.

For your convenience, the text of the final bill is included below.

Should the existing thread ever be locked or deleted, it shall be the responsibility of the Secretary of Federal Elections to create a new thread and the Moderator General to sticky it."
2) The following is added to Section 8 as Clause 6: "A candidate may not declare for an office more than two months before the earliest possible commencement of the election."
