I have lots of experience setting up election polls. For turn players, I think what we need are "approval" polls, ie "do you approve of name being a turn player?". These are yes/no polls and simple majority needed for approval. I think for contested elections we should use polls with a defined end date. The old democracy games typically used 3 days. The polls will be private, so the names of who voted are not shown. Do we want to require a majority (use a runoff poll) or simple plurality (most votes wins unless there is a tie)? How long do we want the terms of office to be? It might be some number of calendar days, some number of turns, until the official wants to step down, until n% of the team calls for an election, etc?
