    per the recently approved Code of laws article H7 the president now appoints the officials to head the election office and President SD3 has appointed me, Crimso, and trotsky 7 to head the election office so I'm making this thread and calling it my second office. I would like to congratulate my fellow elections officers on their appointments, from a brief lookover here is what we need to do:
    1.Update the election results threads, these are atrociously out of date
    2.Set up nominations/elections threads later,
    3.Make a nominations tracker,

    Since we've got until 8 days left in the month before nominations I propose we re-do the election index so that term 3 will be included and that we decide who will post the nominations and elections thread

    Nominations are currently set to start on the 23rd and elections will begin on the 26th of this month

    Perhaps this should be in the main DG forums, with elections coming up and all.

    nominations are set to start on the 23rd. I should be able to be their to post the threads but I would like to involve my fellow officers in any way possible, so if either of you guys want to post nomination threads then please do.

    First, thanks for taking this on, mhcarver!

    Would you mind updating the first post to include the current election cycle?

    Thanks!

    Last year we started nominations (DG4 T1) a little early so that people who travel over Christmas can post their nominations before leaving on their trips. Would it be possible to do that again this year?

    The recently passed Code of Laws article H allows:
    Code:
    any citizen may open a pre-nomination thread in the main 
    forum to post a self-nomination and acceptance for any 
    office up to one week ahead of the normal nomination 
    threads.
    We are within 1 week, so anyone who wants to self-nominate and accept is welcome to.

    I would like to request the debate threads be open now.
    COL:
    They should have been opened with the nomination threads.
    I know crimson wanted PMs sent instead, but believe it or not hardly anyone will send PMs, its much better when a debate thread is open, and the thread poster can edit questions into the first post if he/she wants

    Ok, if by law I am required to post the threads I'll do it. I'll post debate threads that don't have any use yet because so few candidates have accepted. I'll post debate threads that will probably go unused because there are so many uncontested elections. I'll let the people post their own questions, so that they'll be perfectly unbiased and fair.

    I am perscribed by law to do so. I am not given any instructions or guidlines; I have no input from the people or the chair person of the office I serve; I have to do it on Christmas Eve.

    Why the law perscribes so specifically what I am supposed to do with out any forsight into the results, I have no idea. But after this election, I will try to change it. I suppose I should thank you BH, because like me, you're just doing your job. Here they come! Watch as our beautiful main forum is swamped with usless threads! AHAHAH!

    Crimso, my understanding is that there is very little participation in the later terms of Demogames. I am sorry my attendence has been sparse the past day or so but when the next DG starts I think the debate threads will be much more usefull. Good job bye the way :goodjob:

    Due to a recent turn of events, mainly my parents forcing me to go camping with them(blasted being 16 years old) tommorow, I will not be around to post elections threads so Crimso could you please post threads , and if not could the president please appoint anybody willing to do so, I am really really sorry

    Would Trotsky 7 also please report? Otherwise, I may consider that citizen absent.

    I won't be back from work until at least 3-4 Hours after the Election deadline. And depending on my state, I may be too tired then... Hm...

    Well, officially it's still the 26th, but we do not yet have Election Polls. I think mhcarver is actually a Republican in disguise. ;) j/k.

    I hope there won't be any hard feelings if someone other than an Election Office person posts the Election Polls. They need to be done.

    No hard feelings Cyc, this whole camping thing was a huge SNAFU.

    If this is indeed in the CoL now, then I need to pay more attention. Last time we tried putting Debates in the Citizens Forum(away from the rest of the electoral action), it was a major disappointment. The electoral process should unfold in the same place to minimize confusion.
