1. D
2. A
3. B
4. C

I've always favored letting the regions decide constitutional amendments over a nationwide vote. I haven't changed my position in that regard.

My two cents is this for anyone trying to decide how to vote here: originally I envisioned the new constitution to be a document that made all areas of Atlasia relevant, especially regions. I wanted regional elections to matter and be contested.

Allowing regional legislatures to ratify the constitution makes sense, if we're to have regions at all. I don't understand what the other two regional plans in this thread mean, and I find them too complicated to understand for most people. We need to keep it simple. Plan D accomplishes all of those things, and I hope we pass it.

RESULTS of the PRINCIPLE VOTE on CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

First Count
Plan A   6
Plan B   3
Plan C   1
Plan D   8

Second Count
Plan A   6
Plan B   4
Plan D   8

Third Count
Plan A   8
Plan D   10

By a majority of two votes, PLAN D has been ADOPTED.


In retrospect, it's probably for the best that Plan D won out. This way we have a process for amending the Constitution that is time-tested and absolved of the controversy that would have dogged the other three plans.

Alright, moving along! I'll propose an amendment to incorporate the results of this vote shortly; after that, we'll proceed to the legislative process and then (hopefully) a final vote.

Glorious news!
