I reached out to the Chancery over the last week on the following issues:

1) questioning when the referendum would start, since it had to be during this Clark.
2) the aforementioned discussion of 50 word statements.
3) in the last few hours I offered my opinion that Sir Pol and the Regent were right and 1-option ballots were perfectly legal, and thus the ballots should be resent.

That's it.

My apologies. I'm not terribly familiar with ranked choice voting so I worded this thread poorly. Voters may of course rank as few or as many as they wish. One-option votes are completely valid.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

I never received a new ballot by email, though I did receive an email stating I would be receiving a new ballot. I did vote my original ballot by ranking second and third options that I would not have chosen had I not been required to choose multiple options.

I would like to cast my only vote as follows:

Rank 1: Option 3: the King of Talossa shall continue to have the political powers granted by the current Organic Law.

(My personal preference would actually strike the words "the current", and revert to a previous iteration of Organic Law as it pertains to the powers of the King, but unfortunately I wasn't around to lobby for a fifth option when this bill was Hoppered.)

Your service to the realm is very much appreciated - yours is a complex and administratively difficult task but all citizens respect your work.
