Voting: August 2020 Special Judicial Election
Voting is now open in this Judicial Election. Voting will be from (time=1596752100) (your forum time) to (time=1597184100) (your forum time), and ballots submitted outside that time are invalid.
Everyone who is a Citizen at the time voting opens is eligible to vote. Loss of Citizenship before the close of voting also results in loss of eligibility to vote.
Public Voters must use the following voting form:
[b]Court Justice:[/b] 1. < Yalkan | Vivanco | Eluvatar | Abstain > 2. < Yalkan | Vivanco | Eluvatar > 3. < Yalkan | Vivanco | Eluvatar > [b]Would you like to reopen nominations?[/b] < Yes | No >
[b]Ballot ID number:[/b] # [code] [b]Court Justice:[/b] 1. < Yalkan | Vivanco | Eluvatar | Abstain > 2. < Yalkan | Vivanco | Eluvatar > 3. < Yalkan | Vivanco | Eluvatar > [b]Would you like to reopen nominations?[/b] < Yes | No >
Ballots not submitted according to these guidelines are invalid. Ambiguous votes are invalid. Ballots that do not answer "Would you like to reopen nominations?" are invalid.
The Court Justice race has recently been modified by the "Lessening Repeating Work" Act. Please see Section 4.6 of the Legal Code for details on how ballots will be counted.
If you wish to abstain from this race, you must only mark line #1 with Abstain and omit all other lines except "Would you like to reopen nominations?", which must still be answered. Marking a preference in subsequent lines will cause your abstention to be ignored and your preferences to be counted.
Election Commissioners are required by law to announce private votes in the voting thread, including the candidate(s) the vote was cast for, promptly after those votes are cast. To allow voters to verify their vote is individually counted, the Election Commission will also be including the ballot ID number. For this reason, voters are discouraged from announcing, as was custom, that they have voted privately, as the subsequent public declaration by the Election Commissioners can potentially reveal how they voted.
Please do not post anything other than your ballot in this thread. If you have any questions please send them directly to The Voting Booth or start a new thread. Additional and unnecessary comments will be removed.
