    at-large governors fill empty governor slots in mid-term and serve as Senators (essentially, as governors without a province). The top two winners gets the office.

    Errm - are you sure we're electing 2 At-Large Governors?
    Code:
    C.  The Legislative Branch 
      1.  The Senate (Governors) 
        a.  Structure
          1.  The Senate shall be comprised of all Provincial 
              Governors
            A.  Should the number of provinces at the beginning 
                of a term be less than 3, a number of At-Large 
                Governors shall be elected.
              1.  The number of At-Large Governors shall be that
                  needed to bring the total number of Governors 
                  to [B]3[/B].
    The above from the Code of Laws would seem to indicate we only need 1 now that Berry and Audiac have their own Governors.

    Nope - it's just fine as written. The only time we'll have At-Large Governors is if there are less than three provinces (hence, less then three Governors). We'll then have as many At-Large Governors as needed to bring the Senate up to three members.

    Furiey is correct - we will only have 1 At-Large Governor.

    I decline my nomination. My reasons are a dearth of time and computer access, and new blood would be great.

    DZ, thank you for the nomination, for now i'll stay undecided untill i figure out exactly what sort of activity this position requires. i've got no problems accessing the forum almost any time, its access to the game file that's a bit "tight" for me. so if i'd need to check stuff in the game a lot, i wouldnt be able to perform my duties.

    will post a decision later today.
