Best certification ever, Ernest. I have a question and by asking I don't mean to imply there's any issue; I just want to know.

When determinng a majority of preferences, in later rounds, are ballots where preferences have been exhausted included in the total number of ballots or are they removed? And, over time, have SoFAs been consistent on how to count exhausted ballots in determining majority?

Good job Ernest. Kind of a nitpicky question: Is Al's re-registration valid as he did not list a state? Even though it's assumed he's just staying in West Virginia I always believed you need to list all three fields while registering.

I have been consistent and removed exhausted ballots and I believe other SoFAs have as well.  The requirement in the law is for "a majority of the highest preference votes" which implies that a ballot which has exhausted its preferenes is no longer counted.  Furthermore, the election law has no provision for what should happen if no candidate receives preferences on a majority of ballots. By the way, the issue is moot for this election since even if one were to take the opposite interpretation, jeruslaemcar5 still would have won the Northeast Senate seat with 11 preferences on 21 ballots in the 4th round of counting.

Article V Section 2 Clause 1 states: "A person may become a registered voter if he has attained twenty-five posts at the forum. In registration, the person must state his name and State of fantasy residence; in addition, he may optionally state a political affiliation."

Thus when registering for the first time you must provide one's name and State.  The Constitution is silent on the question of what is required when changing one's registration and since the reason for requiring a State is so that voters can vote for the Senate, I see no reason to be picky about it.  Besides, even if I were picky about it, it would have no practical effect.  (Tho it could if the Senate ever gave the major parties some advantage under the law, as is within their power.)

I was thinking about that as well, and the only real thing I could think of would be something along the lines of to be on the ballot one must either win the nomination of a major party (through a primary if necessary) or have the signature of something like 10 Atlasians. However, I am not sure if making ballot access a little tougher would be a good thing, and people could always write in a candidate anyway.

Also, am I currect in saying that for the next census, there will be 78 citizens total?

76 unless either Kake or True democrat reregister or some other voter deregisters.  Between that and the fact that the people could move, I'm not releasing census figures or a map until the 1st.

This is a heads up on the Census results.  The Census won't be until Friday, but here is what we have right now.

EDIT: Sam Spade moved from Puerto Rico to Texas on July 1.  Map updated to reflect that.



Census population: 74  (14.8 per District)



Total population: 93 (18.6 per District)

Red are all registered voters; blue is just those who voted in the last Federal election.  Redistricting has to be balanced according to the blue.  The red is provided merely as information that the governors may wish to consider as they decide how to redistrict; but they can totally ignore it if they wish

These are the official Census results as of noon today.



Census population: 73 (14.6 per District)



Total population: 92 (18.4 per District)

It has been interesting to have been your Secretary of Forum Affairs, and until Peter Bell is sworn in, I shall continue to serve in a caretaker function, but I'll let him decide what to do with the draft regulations that hadn't yet been finalized.  At a minimum they need some rewriting so that they reference the newly passed electoral law instead of the former.

To help redistricters who wish to balance both Census and Total Population, here's a map showing the difference between the two values.



19 registered voters who did not vote in the last election.

Is there a requirement on how long a platform of a party must be for it to be considered a recognized party?

The only requirement under current law for a party is that in order for it to be considered a "major party", it must have 5 or members.  In practice, I recognize almost any party name, except in the case of King -- I ignore his parties' names, and keep him listed under King's Joke Party, purely to keep the amount of record keeping to a minimum for his one man parties.

Voter rolls have been updated and uploaded!
This list is current as of 6pm EDT today.

Any further updates will be the responsibility of the new SoFA and almost certainly in a different location.

Once I get more settled in, I'll look into this for you. I will have an answer for you by the end of the weekend hopefully.

Lets be clear - any and all deregistration requests must be posted in the Registration Thread by the person wishing to be deregistered. If one does not do so, they will be ignored.

The occurences in the AWN thread or in a certain duel will not be considered official for the purposes of deregistering persons.
