    If a prospective candidate will not be available during the election cycle, due to an announced absense, should we allow pre-acceptance of the nomination?

    The constitution says only that offices must be filled by election, nothing about how the election should be conducted.

    This poll will run for 48 hours. There was no discussion.

    I vote that they can, if for no other reason that I will be using one if I can.

    I voted yes. Why would you make so that someone being on vacation during nominations would make so that they were guaranteed not to hold a position next term (barring unfilled seats and mid-term elections)?

    There is no doubt for me that we should allow it. Just making sure given our penchant for splitting hairs regarding the rules that the wotp was sought.

    I voted yes. Though I am a bit fuzzy on on part. Would this effect the acceptance procedure that made me Vice President in Term 2 after Chieftess left?

    i voted no, because imho this would be berlusconying our laws.
    (making a law specially fitting on the personal needs of some persons).
    if they are not here, its their problem. they can run the next term :-9

    also, it should be stated that this poll will have only informational character, as there was no pre discussion etc.

    There does not have to be pre discussion, it's just strongly recommended.

    If you wish to have me accept a nomination on your behalf, send me a PM. Problem solved, I believe.
