FYI, this is actually the wrong amendment (apologies for the mistake). This amendment passed in time, so can someone please sponsor this amendment to make it the right constitutional amendment.
Quote
Uniform Election Time Amendment

I. To allow for consistency in our election procedures and times, and to bring them to the same standards as federal elections, the Constitution of the Region of Lincoln is amended as follows:

Quote from: Lincoln Constitution, Article 5.7
Except in December, all elections for governor, Council, and federal Senate shall begin on the penultimate Friday of the given month. In December, all elections shall begin on the second Friday of the month. All special elections for governor and by-elections for Council shall begin on the second Friday following the creation of the vacancy to be filled; but if the vacancy shall occur on a Thursday, the special election shall begin on the third Friday following the creation of the vacancy. The appropriate election administrator shall open the voting booth at 12:00:00 AM, Eastern Standard Time (or Eastern Daylight Time from the second Sunday of March to the first Sunday of November.) Standard Time. Voting shall continue for 72 hours, and no vote cast more than 72 hours after the voting booth was opened shall be considered valid. The election administrator must accept any absentee ballots cast no more than 168 hours prior to the commencement of the election.

II. This Amendment takes effect after ratification by the people of Lincoln as pursuant to Article VI of the Lincoln Constitution.

Link to the debating thread from last session
This bill has already been very well debated last session, and all 3 councillors have publicly supported this, so unless anyone has any new questions you really should move to a vote on this quickly.
