If there are no more final issues to be resolved here or points to make, I will bring this up for a final vote tomorrow.

Quote from: Final Text
Empowering Regions in Federal Elections Amendment

1. A region's governing body shall have the authority to determine procedure for administration of voting and certification of election results for their own Class A Senate elections currently scheduled in the months of February, June, and October.

2. A region's governing body may determine the means of election to Class A Senate election.

3. To ensure a fair process of election, any alternative system of voting chosen by the region's governing body for Class A Senate elections must be conducted in public, on-site, and may not disqualify any candidate meeting the qualifications set in the Constitution.

4. If a region fails to open a vote for their Senator and President within 12 hours of when polls must open, a Federal Officer of the Executive Branch shall open the vote on behalf of the region.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

What exactly are you referring to? The final text I posted on page two had a lingering clause that had been amended out. Them strikethroughs just don't copy and paste. Tongue

You know, that is why we have 10 people in this body. So that you have nine "reviewers" in case something was missed. TJ found something I had missed. Someone else wasn't available to discover what he missed.

This too shall pass. I can reintroduce this, put it into the PPT slot which is open. Use UC and have it at vote by tomorrow night.

The text says "their Senator and President."  Regions can't elect a president nor do they open separate booths for those elections.
