I had originally advised Ernest that he should consult with the AG on this matter. My first thought was that the Attorney General should prosecute such a case, but on reflection, looking into law, and discussing with Justice Emsworth, I'm not sure that that is the case.

There is no statute that states who should prosecute. I do think it's pretty clear it is within the executive branch, but it is possible each department should prosecute violations of laws within its responsibility; thus it might be appropriate for the SoFA to prosecute this case.

As a member of another branch, and since there is no clear indication, I believe the President, in consultation with his cabinet, should make this determination as to who should prosecute, if a case is to be brought. If the President makes a determination that the Senate disagrees with, the Senate may craft legislation to answer this question for future instances.

This is my opinion, not a legal ruling, of course.

The new Candidate Declaration Thread is open for business, with the start of the declaration period bumed back from 21 to 28 days, I should have opened it last week, but since the new regulations didn't get promulgated until today, I don't think any real harm has been done.  I lefte Federal out of the thread's name, since I don't mind if the Regions choose to make use of it, but that's their call to make.

The voter rolls in the wiki have been updated up to the point of the spreadsheet provided by the SoFA (May 1). Main, State, and Party listings are up to date. I have editted states and parties as listed on the updated page of the spreadsheet. Various changes have been made to the wiki by others before they have made it to the spreadsheet. There have also been several new registrations since the spreadsheet was updated and unless it was done by someone else, these are not included on the wiki.

Voter rolls have been updated and uploaded!
Delay has largely due entirely to the fact that it is a PITA for me to upload to my webspace and that there was no Federal reason to rush.

I hope it didn't sound like I was rushing you. Sorry if it was. I know SoFA is one of the hardest jobs here.

No problem.  I keep the rolls updated constantly, I just don't upload them after every change.

Would it be advantageous for the SoFA to use the Wiki exclusively, rather than having two people to publish similar information in two different places?  I remember that I wasn't very good with wiki-writing, so I chose to stick with Excel, but it might be easier in the long run if at some point some SoFA could make the switch.

But nice work, Mr. Secretary and Mr. Attorney General.

The ability to easily sort and update causes me to want to keep the information in a spreadsheet format, not Wiki format.

I have discovered I have made a small error.  I was thinking that the election would be the weekend of June 15-18, but it is actually June 22-25, since the third Thursday is not the second to last Thursday this June.  People have one extra week to campaign and declare.

Exactly. Maybe future version of the wiki software will allow table sorting or something.

I was working on a web-based database, but never got a front end working. (That's when Joe was still President.)

It is wonderful that Joe Republic is back.  However, it has been four months since he last voted, and therefore I must announce that he in accordance with Article IV Section 2 Clause 6 of, he is officially deregistered as of today.

However, he still has plenty of time to reregister before the election if he wishes.

Ernest, how long after one is inactive does one become inactivated?  Does it bar them from running from any office?

four months after one's last vote, one is deregistered.  Reregistration after that is treated the same as a new registration, so you would need to be registered at least 10 days before an election to vote.  As long as one is registered and you meet the 100 or 250 post requirement for Senator or President respectively, you can run, even if you can't vote because of the 10 day rule.
