Thats an exetremely good point you make. I have one more question before I do though:

Does Bono V. Atlasia II still stand relevant? i.e., can the senate still not pass a minimum wage law for the nation? Can it still not run certain means of production?

I, hereby, introduce this Bill (Part 1):

Consolidated Electoral System Reform Bill

Section 1: Votes

1.   In their vote in the Elections to the Senate and the Presidency, each voter shall list some, none, or all of the candidates in the voter's order of preference for them.
2.   If no numbering of the preferences is stated, then the candidate at the top of the list shall be presumed to be the first preference, the candidate on the second line of the list shall be presumed to be the second preference, and so on.
3.   A voter may cast a write-in vote in any election, except a runoff election.
4.   In order to write-in a candidate, the voter shall not be required to explicitly specify that his or her vote is for a write-in candidate.
5.   In order for write-in votes for a candidate to qualify as countable votes, the person written-in must formally accept the write-in candidacy before the end of voting in the given election.
6.   A voter may vote for "None of the Above" in any election, except a runoff election. Any voter who votes for "None of the Above" may do so only as a first preference; any and all lower preferences of the voter shall be ignored.
7.    If a voter shall explicitly cast a vote in a Senate race for which they are not qualified to vote, then the vote in that Senate race shall be considered non-extant, and the voter may post a new vote in the correct Senate race if applicable

Section 2: Determination of the Winner

1.   If any candidate shall gain a majority of highest preference votes, then that candidate shall be declared the winner of the election.
2.   If no candidate has a majority of highest preference votes, the candidate with the fewest first preferences shall be eliminated, and his or her votes redistributed according to the next-highest preferences of the voters.
3.   If, after the implementation of Clause 2 of this Section, any candidate shall have a majority of the highest preference votes, then that candidate shall be declared the winner of the election. If no such candidate shall exist, then Clause 2 of this Section shall be implemented again until such a candidate does exist, or until all candidates have the same number of highest preference votes.
4.   If two or more candidates are tied for the least number of highest preference votes, but none of those candidates are tied for the greatest number of highest preference votes, then the following procedure shall be used to determine which candidate is eliminated:
i. The candidate with the least total number of preferences expressed by voters shall be eliminated.
ii. The Senate shall vote on which candidate to eliminate, with the Vice President being able to cast a tie-breaking vote if necessary.

Section 3: Run-off Elections

If all remaining candidates shall have the same number of highest preference votes, then the following procedure shall be used to break the tie:

1.    Run-off elections shall begin between midnight Eastern Standard Time on the first Thursday after the initial election and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the first Friday thereafter, and shall conclude exactly 72 hours after the beginning.
2.   Those candidates who have tied shall be automatically entered onto the ballot. No other candidacies shall be allowed.
3.   Voters shall only be able to cast a vote for one candidate.
4.   If any candidate shall gain a majority of the votes cast, then he shall be declared winner.
5.    In the event that litigation is pending before the Supreme Court at the time a run-off is due to be held, the Supreme Court may delay the run-off in a specified manner if it thinks the result of such litigation would have a substantive impact on the run-off.

Section 4: Tied Run-off Elections

If the Run-off Election procedure specified in section 4 results in a tie, then:

1.   One of the tied candidates may concede their portion of the term. The rules for determining the winner shall proceed based on as if the number tied candidates is reduced by one.
2.   The two candidates shall each serve a Senate session.
a. The two candidates will be allowed to determine the order in which the terms are split.
b. If no agreement is reached regarding the order of the terms that each candidate serves in, if one of the tied candidates is an incumbent, then that candidate shall serve the first session.
c. If both of the tied candidates are incumbents, due to redistricting or other circumstances, or if neither of the candidates are incumbents, and no agreement has been reached regarding the order of the terms that each candidate serves in, then the candidates shall serve in alphabetical order, going by their names used on the Registered Voter Roll.
3.   In the event of a tie between more than two candidates:
a. The tied candidates may make any agreement they see fit.
b. If an agreement cannot be made by (a), the Senate shall either:
i. Select one candidate to serve the entire term.
ii. Select a schedule that will allow all tied candidates to serve a portion of the term.
4.   If one of the term sharing senators resigns or is elected or appointed to another office, than the other will serve out the remainder of the term.

Section 5: None of the Above

If, in an election, the None of the Above option shall have gained more votes than each candidate, then a new election shall be held under the following procedure:

1.    The new election shall be held between midnight Eastern Standard Time on the second Thursday after the initial election and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the first Friday thereafter at 1800 Eastern Standard Time on the second Thursday after the election, and shall conclude exactly 72 hours after the beginning.
2.   None of the candidates defeated by the None of the Above option in the original may be declared candidates in the new election. However, a voter may still write-in any such candidate.
3.   The candidacy declaration deadline for the new election shall be the same as for special elections.
4.   Except as regards Clause 2 of this Section, all other provisions of this Act shall apply to the new election.

Section 6: Absentee Voting

1.   As mandated by Article V, Section 2, Clause 8 of the Federal Constitution, all voters shall have the right to cast absentee votes after the candidacy declaration period has expired.
2.   Upon the candidacy declaration deadline occurring the Secretary of Forum Affairs or Deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs shall establish a thread for absentee voting which shall include a full ballot. In the event that a run-off is necessary, absentee voting shall open as soon as is practical after the certification of the original election results.
3.   Voters wishing to vote by absentee shall post their votes as they otherwise would.
4.   In the event that a person votes by absentee and regularly then both votes will be discounted.

Section 7: Applicability

Any instance of the word "candidate" in Sections 1 through 7 shall be read as "ticket" in the case of Presidential elections.

(Part 2)

Section 8: Candidacy Declarations

1.   The candidacy declaration deadline for regular elections to the Senate shall be seven days before the commencement of the election (i.e. this would be no later than midnight Eastern Standard time on the Thursday prior to the election) and for special elections to the Senate shall be two days before the commencement of the election.
2.   The candidacy declaration deadline for full tickets of a Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidate to declare shall be seven days before the commencement of the election (i.e. this would be no later than midnight Eastern Standard time on the Thursday prior to the election). However, should the Vice-Presidential candidate withdraw his candidacy, then the Presidential candidate may nominate a new Vice-Presidential candidate up to 72 hours before the commencement of the election.
3.   In all cases, the assent of both the Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidate shall be necessary for them to appear together as a ticket on the ballot.

Section 9: Administration of Voting Booths

1.   Whenever possible, the Secretary of Forum Affairs, or the Deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs, shall be the administrator of the voting booth. If both shall be absent or unable to administer the voting booth, then the President shall designate an executive officer to do so instead.
2.   The administrator of a voting booth shall be free to design the ballot as he or she sees fit, as long as the content of the ballot is clear and unambiguous.
3.   The administrator of a voting booth shall post links to all relevant statute regarding electoral law on the ballot.
4.   The administrator of a voting booth shall give registered voters seven days advance public notice, in both the Fantasy Elections Forum and the Voting Booth, of the hours in which voting shall take place for all regular Senate elections.
5.   The administrator of a voting booth shall give registered voters seven days advance public notice, in both the Fantasy Elections Forum and the Voting Booth, of the hours in which voting shall take place for all special Senate elections called on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday; and three days advance public notice, in both the Fantasy Elections Forum and the Voting Booth, of the hours in which voting shall take place for all special Senate called on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

Section 10: Certification of Election Results

1.   When the voting period has expired, the administrator of the voting booth or a moderator of the Forum shall lock the thread containing the voting booth. The thread shall not be unlocked except to enter the official certification of the election result onto the thread.
2.   Certification of the election result shall be conducted as soon as reasonably possible after the voting booth shall have closed by the administrator of the voting booth. If the administrator of the voting booth shall not be available to conduct such certification, then he or she shall designate another executive officer of the federal government to carry out such certification in his stead.
3.   In certifying the result the administrator shall list all those votes which he or she has discounted, and the reasons for these votes being discounted. The voting booth administrator shall discount all votes that are invalid under the law, and shall only count those remaining votes for which he or she is able to make a reasonable determination as to the intent of the voter subject to such conditions as imposed by Section 12 of this Act.
4.   The certifying officer may post provisional certifications of the election results, but these shall be of no legal effect.
5.   Once the certifying officer is content that he has a full and complete certification he shall post an official certification which shall be final in all respects, unless a Court order shall instruct otherwise.

Section 11: Reasonable Determination of Intent

1.   Where a voter lists only the Presidenitial candidate of a ticket in a Presidential election and this is the sole occurrence of the Presidential candidate on the ballot, then the vote shall be construed to be for the ticket which the Presidential candidate is a member of.
2.   Where a voter lists all candidates or tickets running and places some mark to the right or left of one and only one of the candidates or tickets, then the vote shall be construed to be for that candidate or ticket.
3.   The enumeration of certain reasonable determinations of intent in this section shall not be construed to be exclusive.
4.   The provisions of this section do not override the Akno21 v. Fritz Supreme Court decision.

Section 12: Concession of Victory

1.   If a candidate shall concede his or her victory of a Senate election after the certification of the election result, then the candidate with the next greatest number of highest preference votes in that election shall then be declared victor.
2.   If both members of a Presidential ticket shall concede their victory in the Presidential election after the certification of the election result, then the members of the ticket with the next greatest number of highest preference votes in that election shall then be declared victors.
3.   If a victor who has conceded shall wish to retract his or her concession, then he or she may only do so with the permission of the newly declared victor.
4.   If an election shall produce a tie, then any candidate or ticket may decline to go forward to the run-off. If such actions shall leave only one candidate or ticket in the runoff, then that candidate or ticket shall be declared the victor.
5.   If a tied candidate or ticket that has withdrawn shall wish to re-enter the run-off, then they may only do so with the permission of the other candidates or tickets in the tie.
6.   Concessions made before the certification of election results, or on or after the date on which the newly elected official is due to be sworn in, are of no legal effect whatsoever.

Section 13: Statute of Limitations

1.   Lawsuits challenging the validity of certified election results shall only be valid if filed with the Supreme Court within one week of the certification of such results.
2.   Lawsuits challenging the validity of election results certified on or before 18 March, 2006 shall not be valid.

Section 14: Federal Activity Requirements

1.   All those persons who have posted at least 25 times in the 8 weeks (56 days) prior to the commencement of an election shall be defined as active for the purposes of that election.
2.   Those persons considered inactive (defined as not active) shall not be qualified to vote in a particular election.
3.   Anyone who has cast an absentee ballot shall be regarded as an active voter, provided he or she fulfills the definition by the time the election commences for which the ballot was cast, of an "active voter"; However, the post containing the ballot shall not count towards the total number of required posts.

This Act consolidates Sections 1 through to 3 of the Unified Electoral Code Act and Section 4 through to 14 (renumbered) of the Electoral System Reform Act

I'll explain the amendments (i.e. changes in green ) once it is on the floor of the Senate

That's a good concept for a bill, Vlad.  It needs a little bit more of the bureacratic trimmings before it's fit for proposal, though, I think.  I'll write my own draft and pm it to you.
