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!

Glüc, thank you for your service to our province by administration of this process.

Given the holiday time period for Thanksgiving this week it would make sense to call l'Etats to session beginning December 1st, 2020.  I am currently traveling but will begin circulating an agenda for the opening session over the next several days.

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.

All Cezembreans appreciate your service, and it would be great if you could run the election.  I would offer to, but I intend to be a candidate so that won't be possible.

regarding

3.1. At the conclusion of the election, each option is assigned all ballots which express it as first preference. The option with the fewest ballots assigned to it is eliminated. Each ballot cast for the eliminated option is reassigned to the next expressed preference on the ballot.

and

3.4. If any ballot assigned to an eliminated option does not express a next preference, the ballot is treated in the same way as an abstention.

I would suggest that the the option to vote to rank only one, or otherwise less than the total number of options be specifically noted in voting instructions.  This will allow those who wish to make a clear focused selection to do so, rather than being confused with the appearance of having to select an option that they do not support in any manner.

going more meta

It should become clear that the Ziu should first consider the question as to whether ranked choice voting should be considered as a procedure to modify Organic Law, and until such time as that is established, then this could just boil down to:
- the King of Talossa shall continue to have the political powers granted by the current Organic Law.
or
- Some other specifically noted option

2. The Secretary of State shall publish minimum standards for Senäts elections run by the Provinces. If the Chancery deems that these standards are not met in a certain Province at a particular election, the Chancery may request a Cort injunction allowing the Chancery to assume control of the Senäts election in that Province.


Based upon other items recently hoppered, the standards set by any particular S.O.S. might attempt to overturn provincial voting procedures, such as adding some type of ranked choice voting with instant runoff when the province prefers something else, such as a plurality, an official separate runoff for clear majority, or even a lottery among candidates.

The minimum standards should be something along the lines of that a quorum among citizens of the province taking part in a discussion of an election shall constitute an impetus towards such an election (should there not be a functioning local legislative body) but those S.O.S. standards should not further intrude on provincial autonomy which may include what the province defines as specific terms and procedures in the constitution or legal code of said province.

Trial and error attempting to update http://wiki.talossa.com/L%27Etats_de_C%C3%A9zembre#Member_Chart but not sure if LCC = LIB?
Does anyone have the previous composition of l'Etats during Cosa 54?
Answering my own question at https://talossa.com/national-government/political-parties/ for LCC, will tweak further and assume since Txosuè Éiric Rôibeardescù has 2 seats and was assigned the 4 LCC seats that all of them are LCC

M-M and Cezembre, please?

I and others have been reaching out to various authorities since the time I was appointed Senator for the final Clark of the 54th Cosa.  Since the time of the election we have yet to be able to hold forth in l'Etats due to lack of a Seneschal.

For those of a more contemplative simultaneous planned move style, I have been on www.youplay.it for Wooden Ships and Iron Men and Blue Max for 15+ years.  It is simple to make private games for Talossans if desired, and there is no cost to participate (donations to the site are optional).

Well there was some sort of election last year in which we elected Dame Litz Cjantscheir. Sadly, she has been unavailable as well.

I guess I can run the election if needed, but either Dame Litz or Sir Cresti would have to appoint me to do so.

@Dame Litz Cjantscheir, UrN  @C. M. Siervicül

Hear Hear!  This will help to overcome inertia, or if that appointment is not forthcoming, then perhaps we can petition the King.
