NORTHEAST SUPER HAPPY FUN ELECTION WINNING TIME
Credit goes to Big Daddy AndrewPA!


 
As Governor, I hereby declare this polling place open.

This is the Northeast regional polling booth for the scheduled April 2012 Election.  In this polling place, Northeast citizens are electing Representatives and voting on a proposed Constitutional amendment.

Votes for offices in this region are cast using PR-STV.  Voters who wish to preference more than one candidate should allocate a first preference for a candidate by marking a [1] in the space provided by that candidate's name, and proceeding to number as many preferences as they desire by marking a [2], [3], etc for as many candidates as they so desire.

A vote will be counted so long as the voter that casts it is eligible to vote in this election and casts  a formal ballot. A vote is formal so long as it contains numbered preferences with no duplicate numbers. A ballot containing Roman Numerals is not considered informal. A ballot in which candidates have been ranked a,b,c, etc is not considered informal so long as no letter has been repeated, and so long as a single candidate has been ranked a, for as long as the letters are consecutive with no duplicate letters. A ballot is formal if the CJO can determine the intent of the voter without interviewing that voter.

Per past practice, write-in votes are only counted for a candidate if he or she publicly declares a willingness to receive write-in votes for a particular office in the [name of election] before the polls close in the Candidate Declaration Thread or writes in his or her own name on the ballot for that particular office.

Votes for "NOTA" or "None of the Above" for any office are formal regardless of the preference assigned to it. Should a voter preference "NOTA" as well as other candidates, only his vote for "NOTA" will be counted.

This booth shall remain open until Sunday, April 22 at 11:59:59 EST. Editing your ballot at any point after posting will result in disqualification of your vote!!!

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

If I'm reading our election laws correctly, PyrotheFox was not legally eligible to be a candidate in this election:

Article I, Section 4

Quote
Note that voters must be registered 7 days before an election begins in order to vote in it, and that to be a Candidate, one must be a qualified voter. Note as well that a voter needs 15 posts in the past number of weeks (that number to be determined in statue) to qualify for activity purposes. (currently 8 weeks)

I don't know whether the region's election laws supersede federal requirements in this case; if so, we'll need to fill two seats in the special election. (In which case I certainly hope that Pyro runs.)

Was Pyro eligible to be a candidate in the NE Assembly election?

Yes. "Representatives are to be registered voters in the Northeast Region." "All citizens will be given the opportunity to vote during this time." Those are, I believe, the relevant clauses from the Northeast Constitution.

Nix, I know for a fact that I was an eligible candidate, and I was elected legitimately according to the Northeast Constitution. As Napoleon said, the federal restrictions regarding activity quotas, which I consider ridiculous by the way, do not apply.

I, too, think that said activity requirements are unnecessary, and I'm glad to learn that one does not apply in the Northeast, and if it were the case, I'd set about amending the regional constitution during this session.
