Jfern, I'm not going to do something illegal just because other people did illegal things in the past.

You were disenfranchised illegally last time; I really don't want to do that to Everett now.
You can't just selectively ignore precedent.

I absolutely can.  Illegal precedent will be ignored.  Legal precedent will in most instances be upheld.

You may bring a lawsuit in the "Government" board if you wish; please continue any discussion of this matter in a new thread on that board.  Thank you.

Funny, no one seemed to thing that it was illegal when used against me. Everyone seemed to agree that it was the reasonable course of action.  You   are legislating from the secretaryship with your ruling on Everett.

Give it a rest, Ferny. Q is absolutely correct - he and I worked hard at figuring out what the law said on this issue. You can take this to the ASC is you like, but you're going to lose - law trumps precedent, especially illegal precedent.

I'm sorry your vote was illegally thrown out in that previous election, but you are acting like a dick in insisting that Everett's vote also be illegally thrown out. THERE IS NO RULE SAYING YOU HAVE TO BE REGISTERED IN A PARTICULAR REGION TEN DAYS BEFORE THE ELECTION TO VOTE IN IT! They were wrong when they used it against your vote, and you're wrong now in trying to use it against Everett's vote. Show some goddamn maturity. Angry

Only voters that voted in the last federal election count in the census, or at least the one used to determine senate districts.

The phrase is, in the constitution "Voters who voted in the last federal election."

A bit early perhaps, but since I have an updated voter roll to test out, I'm jumping things a bit before Q gavels the nomination vote to a close.  The new voter roll has a few differences besides simple updates from the last.  The biggest one is that rather than the Microsoft *.xls format, It's in the Open Document *.ods format.  Let me know if that causes accessibility problems with antiquated closed source software.  I can save in other formats, but the file won't be anywhere near as small.  Also let me know if you'd rather if I deleted the macro before upoading it next.  All it does is sort the data in the "By *" sheets.  To the existing By District, By Region, and By Party sheets, I added a By State sheet.

Since I have been informed that in the opinion of the Presiding Officer of the Senate, no vacancy will be created in District 4 when Bono becomes Secretary of the Treasury, I have no plans to hold a special election.

I have chosen to abandon the star system for determining when registrations lapse and instead to institute a system that uses the actual date of the last election voted in, regardless of whether it be a regular or special election.

I also plan on asking the Attorney General whether or not Regional elections sould be counted.

Can someone tell me what program(s) can be used to open the rolls?

The file extension ".ods" appears to be linked to OpenOffice, a free open-source version of Microsoft Office.  Given that not that many people have OpenOffice, and given that it wouldn't exactly be a good idea to force everyone to download it just to look at the file, it might be a good idea to save it in a more accessable format.  Personally, if it was me and I had my own web server, I would go with simply HTML, as that both is just a text file and requires absolutely no external software that people might not have.

Actually it's not an open source version of Micro$oft Office, tho it is an office suite.  I would be surprised if the next version of Microsoft Office does not support the format since several governments are mandating that any software they buy be able to support open standard document formats.  However that will be then and this is now.

<voterrolls> *.ods (59K)
<voterrolls> *.xls (204K)

Well, it does basically all the same things that you get in Microsoft Office, if I'm not mistaken.  That's what I meant, not that it's an exact duplicate.

I thank for your praise, but I think it needs improvement, and the improvement it needs most is to be longer. Wink

Quick question, since I can't vote for the next six months in federal elections, does that mean I will be kicked off the voter rolls?

60 Days not 6 months.

Even if it were 6 months it would be debatable.  One could argue you won't have failed to vote in any elections, because you were not eligible to vote in any, hence you won't be triggering the Article V Section 2 Clause 6 deregistration obligation for failing to vote.  Depends on how that clause is interepreted.

As per President Ebowed',s executive order, The registration of True Democrat in Puerto Rico is revoked and he is considered to be registered in Washington.  The Department of Forum Affairs will not be accepting any further attempts to register in Puerto Rico.

In a bit of unrelated news, just to clear up some confusuion on the matter, MHS2002 is still Deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs.  I never asked for his resignation when I took office as Secretary, and he has indicated that he is willing to continue serving in that post.

As per my authority under Article VIII Section 2 Clause 2 of the Constitution, I am declaring the following:

1. Persons wishing to be on the ballot as candidates for the Senate Election scheduled to be held from April 20 18:00 EST to April 23 18:00 EST shall, in a candidacy thread on the Atlas Fantasy Government forum that will be created for that purpose, post their intent to be a candidate between March 30 18:00 EST and April 13 18:00 EST.

2. Major parties (as defined by Article V Section 1 Clause 8 of the Constitution) shall have until April 19 18:00 EST to identify which, if any, candidates they wish themselves associated with. Such endorsements must be posted in taht same thread to be noticed by the Department.  In the event that a race has only one candidate who is a member of that party, then in the absence of an indication that another candidate or no candidate is endorsed in that race, the candidate will be assumed to be endorsed by that party.

3. Candidates listed on the ballot shall be listed with their State of registration, and with any party endorsements they have received.

4. In the event that law affecting the time of elections should be changed, the times above may be changed to maintain the deadlines of 21 days, 7 days, and 1 day before the elcetion specified above.
