Since my move to Maine hasn't taken effect, can't you make that July 28th move to New Hampshire instead?

Having reviewed the situation, it is the conclusion of the department that since the above move is yet to take effect, you may void it and provide new registration details to take effect on 28 July. You should fully expound on this in the Registration thread.

The Senate elections will be held, as per statute, from Thu-Sun, 24th-26th august. The polls will be opening and closing at 1pm forum time, since that's a nice and decent 7pm over here. Tongue

The filing deadline is 7 days before the earliest possible commencement of the election, on Thu 17th, 1am forum time (midnight Eastern Standard [non dailight savings] time). An absentee voting thread will be opened at the same time.
Announced candidates so far -
District 1 - bullmoose88 (ILP-PA); Dr.Cynic (SDP-PA)
District 2 - Ernest (i-DE); Virginian87 (CDP-VA) (i)
District 3 - LucysBeau [Dave Hawk] (CDP-GA) (i)
District 4 - noone
District 5 - Brandon W (ILP-NV)

Deadline for new registrations and registration changes is the tenth day before the commencement of the election, so monday the 14th.
The constitutional text is "In order to vote or be a candidate in an election, a person must have been a registered voter on the tenth day before that election. If a voter changes their state of registration in the ten days before the election, the state from which they were originally registered shall be the state from which their vote is cast. "
On account of the bolded portion, I'll interpret this as 10 days before the actual commencement of the election, ie 1pm forum time on the 14th.

The following seventeen Atlasians have failed the activity threshold of 25 posts in the 56 days leading up to the election. Should they vote, their vote will not be counted, although according to precedent (IIRC) an attempt to vote will count as a vote regarding the "a vote every four months" rule.

Jesus has signalled that he won't accept write-in votes after all.

The election results have been certified, and can be viewed in the Voting Booth.

The following voters will be struck from the voters' list, either for not voting for four calendar months or for not voting in the first election after their registration:

Name                Party - State - Region - District - Last voted
9iron                 ACA - MI - Mideast - 3 - 23. Apr   *
Beet                    i - VA - Mideast - 2 - 23. Apr          *
Ben                     i - VA - Mideast - 2 - 23. Apr           *
BushOklahoma   CDP - OK - Midwest - 5 - 0              07. Aug
dazzleman           i - CT - Northeast - 1 - 30. Apr      (*)
Gabu                   i - UT - Pacific - 5 - 23. Apr             *
gumbiegirl007    i - MI - Mideast - 3 - 0                    13. Jun
hughento            i - AZ - Pacific - 5 - 23. Apr             *
ian                      MR - MS - Southeast - 3 - 23. Apr    *
Jens                     i - RI - Northeast - 1 - 30. Apr       (*)
Keystone Phil      ACA - PA - Northeast - 1 - 23. Apr     *
Miss Catholic        0 - WI - deregistered - 0 - 0         25. Jul
Mr.Hobbes           CDP - CA - Pacific - 5 - 23. Apr         *
nickshepDEM       CDP - MD - Mideast - 2 - 23. Apr       *
Pbrunsel              ACA - IA - Midwest - 4 - 30. Apr   (*)
SCDem07             i - VA - Mideast - 2 - 23. Apr           *
StatesRights      0 - FL - deregistered - 0 - 23. Apr   *
Yates                ILP - IA - Midwest - 4 - 30. Apr             (*)

I wonder how many of the 40 original registrants are still left and have an unbroken registration history? Regardless, the number just declined by one (sob).

The fact that it is so easily to be deregistered is something that desparately needs to be addressed

I know of nowhere in the real-world were one who registers to vote is, subsequently, deregistered for failing to vote

There's quite a couple of issues to be addressed... we'll need to either turn around the current massive population decline, or change our government arrangements to suit our new smaller population. There were barely more votes cast in these midterms than in the first ever presidential election. I'm starting to think that Hugh may be right, and that the regions will simply have to go out the window.

In the short term, sadly, they may have to Sad The Mideast has been paralysed for the past few months. It is worth considering, as long as the Senate is expanded to 12 members at least, or something like a House composed of 8 members and a Senate of 4. That would keep levels of representation at an appropriate level.

If people try and force the regions out at least leave the region boundaries the same for election purposes, that keeps it kinda the same.

Very true. We've reached the point where there isn't really anyone who wants to run for any regional office.

At least as far as the Mideast goes, the Regional experiment has clearly failed (it's not as though past Governers haven't been worried about it or tried to stop it either; the past few all have). And we were always ahead of the proverbial curve...

I would agree. If the regions were abolished, along with governors etc, then it would be fair to create at least 2-4 new seats on the national legislature to compensate, perhaps allowing existing governors to serve out their term, but as members of the Senate.

As for a two house system, it could work, but it could also overcomplicate the legislative process. The regions have alot of life in them yet, and I thoroughly enjoyed serving mine, but if things don't pick up them may have to be sacrificed. Another option could see the regions reduced, to perhaps 3 but all of these are radical possibilities.

I think those of us, myself included, who pushed for and participated in the Constitutional Convention were perhaps too focused on the wrong issues and were ignorning the 'elephant in the room' Sad

If we do start cutting the size of the government, I think we should have cut the districts to 4 this past election. If we are down to 60 after the next election, then we should go down to three. We should also look at cutting the number of cabinet members.

I'm minded to suggest that we should amend the Constitution, where necessary, and abolish federal voting requirements before we proceed with anything more drastic

I'm going to take on board what everyone has said and tomorrow - before I leave for a few days on Wednesday - I'll set a specific thread away, where all can be discussed out in the open Smiley

At the end of the day, all Atlasia needs is more voters and more willing participants to run for office [Easier said than done!]

If someone does not vote or post they should be removed. However, I would suggest the following:

A voter who has been starred (*) for failing to vote in a federal election shall have his/her star removed by renewing his/her registration.

So we don't keep people who don't participate on the roles, but if someone happens to miss an election, but still wants to remain active, then they can.

I like the Regions, but I concede that we have too few participants at present to maintain the existing system.  Therefore, with apologies to Aahnold, I recomend we switch over to Governor/Senators or Governators for short.  Instead of electing Regional Senators this October, we have the Governors do double duty as Senators. When we have enough people to support all the offices, we can restore Regional Senate seats.
