Voting has of course closed. Now I'm back from London, I'll tally the votes shortly.

Official Certification

Governor Afleitch being the only declared candidate wins against write-ins

Afleitch 10
Tmth 1

As the only declared candidates for the Assembly ZuWo, Inks.LWC and Big Bad Fab are elected. Both Cathcon and A-Bob received write in votes. Neither candidate confirmed that they would accept write-in votes in the official Candidate Decleration thread...but....there is nothing in the Mideast Constitution to confirm that such a requirement is needed. Therefore I declare them elected.

Cathcon voted for himself, so I think it's good, as it has been already judged.

As for A-Bob, well, I don't know...

Cathcon voted for himself, and precedent has been that he's therefore accepting write-in votes (because voting for yourself equates to accepting a vote, otherwise why would you do it).  A-Bob did not, so therefore, I disagree with your decision on A-Bob.  Do we have a Superior Court Justice at the moment?  This could be a fun case to bring some excitement to the region. :)
