This election is held in accordance with Article V of the Constitution and with the Consolidated Electoral System Reform Act.  The regular election begins at 23:59, August 18th, and ends at 23:59, August 21st.

DO NOT EDIT OR DELETE THE POST CONTAINING YOUR BALLOT IN ANY WAY AFTER 20 MINUTES OF ITS BEING POSTED OR YOUR VOTE WILL BE INVALIDATED

The act of campaigning within the election booth is strictly forbidden and will render void any votes made by those who campaign.  The act of campaigning is considered to include, but is not limited to, strong attempts to compel others either to vote or not to vote for one or multiple candidates, or other related activities that could reasonably be construed as a direct attempt to influence how future voters cast their ballots. In other words, this is not a discussion thread. Keep posts to votes only.

However, the Department of Forum Affairs will make every effort to be fair in consideration of the above matter and will give voters the benefit of the doubt.  Explanations of one's vote or simple expressions of approval for a candidate will not be construed as acts of campaigning, unless they obviously violate the above criteria.

Place the numbers 1, 2, etc. in the space provided beside the candidates who you wish to vote for to designate your order of preference for these candidates.  If any other mark or attempt to order the candidates is made, the Department of Forum Affairs will make every effort to deduce voter intent from the content of the ballot, but the warning must be issued that failure to follow the above instructions may result in the invalidation of your ballot in the event of an inability to discern voter intent.  You are an eligible voter in general if you were registered to vote on or before the proper date, and if you made 15 posts in any location within the Atlas Forum in the 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the regular election. In other words, if your name appears on the Census list, you can presume you are elegible.  

In the event that you do not support any listed candidate or that you support one or many candidates that are not listed in addition to those that are, you may write in other candidates and include them in your list of preferences.  Space is provided for one such write-in, but as many can be listed as you wish.  In the event that you do not support any listed candidate, and do not wish to write in any candidate, you may place an X or a 1 beside "None of the above", and only beside "None of the above".  In the event that an X or a 1 appears beside "None of the above" on a ballot, all other marks or numbers will be ignored.  It is not permissible under current election law to vote for both "None of the above" and other candidates.

The Department of Federal Elections strongly recommends that you preference at least 5 candidates, as there are 5 seats to be filled. Every voter should be reminded, however, that any and all candidates can be preferenced, and that preferences even after 5th preference can still be relevant in the count.

DO NOT VOTE IN THIS BOOTH UNTIL THE GENERAL ELECTION BEGINS (23:59 Eastern Time)! VOTES CAST BEFORE THEN ARE INVALID! In other words, apx 30 minutes from the time of this post. Do not vote until then. Thank you.

You are correct. Results will be edited.

As well, I will be doing this from now on. Giving a preliminary result ASAP (ideally I'll actually have it ready to go within a few minutes of the polls closing, especially if I precount, I could possibly have the results posted within 5 minutes) and then waiting some time to validate/certify (24 hours sounds good, perhaps 48 for generals) so that errors can be brought to my attention.

Consider the above validated but not certified, due to the possible quitting of one of the candidates from the forum itself.
