    How do we want to run ratification polls this time? We need to nail down the offices, in particular how many and which advisors, 2 AJ's vs JA and PD, and whether we have any at-large governors prior to the start of elections.

    I propose ratifying the parts we can by immediately writing the articles using results of recent polls and starting ratification polls immediately, instructing the judiciary to use poll results in areas where the articles are not hammered out, and suspending the 2/3 supermajority for amendments until 9/1 or until the entire Constitution is ratified whichever comes first, to make it easier to fix any mistakes we might have before then.

    This will need to be a very short discussion, and very short ratification polls, or the elections will have to proceed with the assumption and hope that we guess right and they are set up in the way the people end up supporting.

    Well, we've already decided on JA and PD over 2 AJ's, and since we have no Senate, we have no need for at-large governors. So there's two things nailed down.

    As I stated in the Article I thead below I think the proposed polls should be posted in the appropriate discussion thread at least 24 hours before being made into a poll. This way everyone gets to read them/ask questions/alter them if needed. Let's not just throw these polls up without looking over the wording. I realize that the initial wording has been put up already, but it was stated that they were just a starting point. Write the proposed poll and leave it up for at least 24 hours in case changes are needed.
