The nomination phase has ended.

There is only one declared candidate. As the law does not provide an option to vote against a candidate, and there is a precedent for not going through the voting phase when only one candidate has declared, there will not be a voting phase.

I hereby certify that @xpb has been elected as Sénéchal of Cézembre.

Congratulations to Sir X. Pol!


if you are a Cézembrean citizen you are entitled to participate and vote in the upcoming election for Sénéchal and should have just received an email about this. If you are a citizen of Cézembre and did not receive an email, please let me know!

The intent of this message is to inform you about the election, make sure the chancery has the correct email adress and call for candidates for the position to declare themselves.

Election dates.
The nomination phase of the election will start on 15 November (today) 23:59 CET. (UTC +1) and end on 22 November 23:59 CET (UTC+2).
Voting (if there is more than one candidate) will start on 23 November (exact time TBD) and end 30 November.

How to vote.
The election will be conducted using an online automated secret ballot. After the polls open you will receive an email containing further instructions on how to vote. The election will be conducted using a preferential ballot, which means you will be asked to rank the candidates. The outcome will be determined using the IRV method.

Standing for office.
All adult citizens (age 14 and over) of Cézembre are entitled to run in the election as a candidate. To register as a candidate, you can reply to the mail, send me a PM here or publicly announce your candidacy in this thread. This can be done at any time before the end of November 22nd. Candidates who have announced themselves publicly before the start of the nomination phase are considered registered unless otherwise mentioned(but are still advised to confirm their candidacy during the nomination phase).

Candidate representatives
If you are running as a candidate in this election, you are allowed to appoint any citizen of Talossa to supervise the conduct of the elections. A candidate representative will have to request the Chancery for legal access to the Cézembrean electoral database. Candidate representatives are strictly bound by provincial (A8: The Sénéchal Elections Act) and national (El Lexhatx D 8.5 & 8.6) and are not allowed to communicate with anyone (including their candidate) about the email adresses of Cézembrean citizens or use these for campaign purposes. Neither are candidate representatives allowed to stand as a candidate in the elections.

The office of Sénéchal.
The duties of the Sénéchal include the conduct of votes in l'Etats, the conduct of elections and providing citizens with information about the province. Further information about the legal duties of the Sénéchal can be found in the Cézembrean administrative guide on the Cézembrean subforum on old Witt.

The Sénéchal elections act,
can be found here: talossa.proboards.com/thread/9093/etats-vote-a8

If you have any question or complaint about the elections
you can reply to the email, contact me on Witt or post in this thread.

Glüc da Dhi, conducting officer for the April 2020 Sénéchal elections.

To be honest, I was kind of taking a break from Talossa. I offered to conduct the election way before I was appointed. Anyway, since I'm here now, if no-one is willing to take over from me, I'll start the election next weekend.

Fwiw, this would have been the virtual top 20 based on round 2/3 (which would also have been the tiebreaker, but I can already reveal we do not have a tie for first place).

1. Under Pressure (6)
2. Telegraph Road (4)
3. Sultans of Swing (8 )
4. Gimme Shelter (?)
4. Take Five (10)
4. Sweet Dreams (14)
7. Bohemian Rhapsody (?)
8. Innuendo (15)
9. Don't Stop Me Now (-)
10. Starman (9)
11. The Sound of Silence (7)
12. What a Wonderful World (17)
12. Africa (12)
14. You Give Love a Bad Name (11)
15. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (18)
16. Baba O'Riley (-)
17. Ring of Fire (3)
18. Knights of Cydonia (-)
19. Crazy Train (19)
20. The Devil Went Down to Georgia (5)

Probably the biggest surprise this final. Last time Ring of Fire reached the final was in 2016, when it ended 5th (out of then 10 finalists). This year it returns after not even making it to round 3 last year and it immediately gets its highest position so far. 6 people voted for it and this includes three top-3 positions for a well deserved third place.

Two songs left. In 3 hours we'll find out whether we'll have a winner that has never won before or whether Queen takes back its place on the throne.

Well, there goes my number one. To me, Telegraph Road is the ultimate TMT song, maybe even more so than Bohemian Rhapsody, because that one tends to top all-time lists everywhere, whereas Telegraph Road really reminds of past TMT editions, when we did have a broadcast. Sadly that was not to be this year, but I will still take this opportunity to listen to it again (actually probably listened to all songs again when posting them).

This year it has the second highest standard deviation, with people either giving no points, putting it in their bottom-3, or putting in in their top-33. Three top-3 places is enough for a small gain compared to last year.

A one place gain as well for the Devil Went Down to Georgia, which got 4 votes including 2 top-3 places.

This means we are now down to the top 3. The winner will be Bohemian Rhapsody, Gimme Shelter, or Ring of Fire. We'll find out in about 6-7 hours

Under Pressure is one of three songs to get points from all voters. However, too many of those votes were on the low end for it to retain its second place.

Tomorrow I will post the top 5.

I guess despite the electorate changing (and shrinking  :'( ) quite a bit this is probably the year with the least change so far.

The Sound of Silence is the highest entry not to have been in the final before. Four votes, including three top 5 finishes and one first place puts it in an impressive 7th place.

Meanwhile, Sultans of Swing keeps its 8th place, being the highest scoring song not to get any top 3 votes, though it got several scores in the top 5.

This means 5 out of last year's top 6 (Starman being the only exception) have made it to the top 6 again. Only Ring of Fire wasn't in the final last year, though it did get 5th place in 2016.

As a reminder, last year the top 6 was
1. Starman
2. Under Pressure
3. Gimme Shelter
4. Bohemian Rhapsody
5. Telegraph Road
6. The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

At the very least we'll have a different winner this year. We'll find out soon if the order has changed for the others as well...
