Empowering Regions in Federal Elections Take Three Amendment

1. A region's governing body shall have the authority to determine procedures 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 within 12 hours of when polls must open, a Federal Officer of the Executive Branch shall open the vote on behalf of the region.

I now request unanimous consent to waive the mandatory 72 hour debate requirement and proceed immediate to a final vote. Senators have 24 hours to object.

We will have a vote here soon, and I would ask that the Senators make haste in voting on it. I am tired of the delays here.


This fixes the mistake in the previous one and is intended to be rammed through quickly since the other one was found to have a problem after it passed. Since the messed up one was unanimous, I don't expect opposition to this cram down. It is for the good of the Senate. Tongue

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.

This should have been finished three days ago. All it needs is one more vote for heaven's sake. Roll Eyes
