    Discussion was here.

    Article X.
                  No person shall hold multiple positions of leadership 
                  (President, Vice-President, Department Leader, 
                  Judiciary, Provincial Governor, Deputy) simultaneously,
                  nor shall have more than one accepted nomination at the

    X. Elections
      1. Nominations and Debate
        a. Nominations will be created by the Election Office 7 days prior 
        to the end of the month.  Citizens may nominate themself or 
        another citizen in this thread.  Citizens may also post pre-
        nominations in the Election Office thread if they will not be 
        present during the nomination period.  This nomination thread 
        should contain a description of the office.
        b. All debates will be within the nomination thread, and will 
        continue through the end of the election cycle.  Any citizen may 
        post questions for the candidates to answer.  Candidates may answer
        or not answer as they wish.
        c. A nomination is not considered Accepted until the candidate 
        makes an explicit post.  All self-nominations are considered 
        Accepted unless otherwise stated.
     2. Election Polls
        a. Election polls will be created by the Election Office 3 days 
        after the Nomination threads are created.  These polls will contain 
        the names of all Accepted candidates for the office, a description 
        of the office, a link to the nomination thread, be set to run for 
        3 days and be marked private.
        b. Should a citizen Accept multiple nominations, and does not 
        explicitly clarify which office they wish to run for, the Election 
        Office will use the first office they Accepted.
        c. The citizen with the most votes at the close of the poll is the 
        winner of the election.  Should two or more candidates tie at the end of the election poll with the same number of votes, a runoff election of two days duration will be conducted with the tied candidates only. This process shall continue until one candidate receives the most votes.

    Nope,
    1.If we are doing the alternate government, the opposeite positions(i.e.Long term science minister and short term science minister) should be deputies of eachother
    2.If the alternate government is fully put in, you should also be able to be in an administrative position.
    3.Also the alternate government positions arent put in

    This is good enough for me. We can add the alternate government wording if we actually decide to go with it.

    There's an extra "Should" on the end of 2.c

    Actually, that extra "should" is an entire clause which is missing.


    Should two or more candidates tie at the end of the election poll with the same number of votes, a runoff election of two days duration will be conducted with the tied candidates only. This process shall continue until one candidate receives the most votes.
    In my opinion the above language is generally understood, and was in the working draft contained in the discussion thread. It's apparently inadvertent removal from the article as posted in this poll should be considered a clerical error, and voting yes in this poll should be considered a vote for the complete draft.

    Well, now that it's pretty much official (overwhelming support), I'll start up the nominations. It seems we're going with daveshack's proposal.
