« on: August 01, 2021, 11:01:01 AM »

In PDF Form (which was made from the print_clark.php page):

or can vote online here: www.talossa.ca/files/clark_vote.php

Or in this thread, until the 21st of the month, at 19h30 TST.

Any votes not posted either using the form above, the current thread or the Senate thread might be ignored and void. Please do not vote by email or private messages.

When you vote, do not indicate any conditions which may make it sound like this vote isn't final: you can always change your vote later.

All nominated Cosa Members and Senators have been emailed

The Lobby / Call for Bills - August 2021
« on: July 20, 2021, 10:45:06 AM »
Just an FYI - I'm having problems with the database, so some of the information below is subject to change when I get it working correctly.

It is my pleasure to open call for bills of the August 2021 Clark.

Eventually, the clark can be viewed in real time here:

www.talossa.ca/files/cosa_vote_result.php?cosa=56&clark=1 (for the votes)

and here:

www.talossa.ca/files/clark.php?cosa=56&clark=1 (for the bills )

It is NOT too late to submit bills, of course, as you have OFFICIALLY until the morning of the 31st of this month, provided your bills have been in the Hopper before end of business day the 21st, of course. I will make the Clark on August 1st's morning and bills submitted up to a few hours before that will probably also be taken.

PLEASE note that in order to support a bill, you need to:

1 ) Be a Senator, the Secretary of State or the King
or
2 ) Have been nominated as a Cosa Member for the upcoming Clark BEFORE the 21st,

To vote on the Clark, you will once again have 2 options:

1 ) You will be able to vote in the Clark thread (which will be created later on the 1st of July), as usual. I will enter your votes in the DB.

2 ) You will be able to vote directly in the database, using your usernumber and DB password (which you can retrieve at: www.talossa.ca/files/login.php using the PSC of the election) or by login via Facebook (which retrieve manual activation on my part).

El Glheþ Talossan / Translating of Official Documents
« on: June 22, 2021, 12:18:07 PM »
I'm in the process of trying to add Talossan names for things when creating official documents in my role as Secretár d'Estat. As such, I know that an individual MC is Membreu dal Cosă. If I remember correctly, the plural is Membreaux, right?

Also, could someone please translate these phrases into Talossan for me please?

It is my pleasure to call Members of the Cosa to vote on the next Seneschal for the 56th Cosa.
Members of the Cosa as of July 1, 2021

The Lobby / Nominations for Seneschal - 56th Cosa
« on: June 04, 2021, 11:59:36 AM »
At this time it is my duty to call for nominations for Seneschal for the 56th Cosa.

Article VI of the Organic Law states:

Quote
Section 5 The election of a Seneschál shall be the sole and exclusive business of the first Clark of every newly seated Ziu, but neither a member of the Senäts nor the King may vote on the matter. The Senäts may undertake during such Clark any of their business for which the consent of the Cosâ or the King be not requisite. (54RZ23)

The method of election of a Seneschál shall be Ranked Choice Voting. Each member of the Cosâ shall have as many votes in the election as the seats which he hold in the Cosâ, but shall cast his votes as one bloc and have no divided conscience. The candidates for each such election shall be nominated by each political party which shall have earned representation in the Cosâ at the most recent general election. (54RZ23) (55RZ22)

No member of the Cosâ may abstain in the election of a Seneschál, and shall rank on his ballot at least two distinct preferences, which itself shall be made public. (54RZ23)

Whichever candidate shall have earned a majority of the votes in his election, as according to the method of Ranked Choice Voting, shall be appointed subsequently and forthwith by the King to serve as Seneschál, and the results of the election shall be published at large in the Clark. (54RZ23)

Section 6 The Seneschál shall announce publicly both the members of the incoming Government and the Government's legislative agenda at least before, if not sooner than, the last day on which a member of the Ziu may submit a measure to the second Clark. Failing this, the King shall dissolve the Cosa and call new elections.(54RZ23)(55RZ22)

Section 7 No election for the Seneschál shall occur, except during the first Clark of a newly seated Ziu. (54RZ23)

Party Leaders, please make your nominations for Seneschal. The voting (and the 1st official Clark of the 56th Cosa) will begin on July 1, 2021 and will end on July 21, 2021.

Wittenberg / May 2021 General Election Polling Station
« on: May 15, 2021, 09:51:35 AM »
--Polling Station 1: Wittenberg-

NB: This is a polling place. Only use this thread for your votes! (Opinions, questions, comments can be posted elsewhere.)

NB: Your vote cannot be changed once cast. Do not edit your posts!

The May 2021 General Elections to elect the 56th Cosa, provincial assemblies and 3 senate seats in addition to the three referenda on amendments to the Organic Law is now active.

*The provinces of Ataturk, Cezembre, and Florencia are holding their own Senate elections. To vote and for more information please check the provincial forum on Wittenberg.

You can find the election rules here.

Ballots will be sent today. If you do not receive a ballot today, please send me a pm.

If you believe there is something wrong with the ballot, please contact me ASAP.


HOW TO VOTE

As per the Organic Law, all votes are final, and cannot be retracted, modified or altered in any way: if multiple votes are sent, only the first one is counted. The only exception is that if you vote on the Cosa part, but forgot to vote on the Senate part, you may add your Senate vote before the election deadline using voting method 1, 2, or 4* (see below). The database admin will then manually insert your Senate vote into the database.

*In this case, make a new separate post, do not alter your original post.

There are five ways to vote:

1 ) You can reply to their Ballot email with your vote, provided the PSC code is in the email. Those votes will be entered manually into the Database system.

2 ) You can write a different email (to talossachancery@gmail.com), provided the PSC code is in it. Those votes will be entered manually into the Database system.

3 ) You can vote using the online form: www.talossa.ca/files/vote.php using only your citizen number (available online and in the email) and the PSC code from the email. Those votes will be entered automatically into the Database system.

4 ) Voters will be able to vote on Wittenberg publicly A single vote thread will be created for casting votes on Wittenberg. If you have received your vote code (PSC), you are requested to cast your vote in that thread. It is suggested that for privacy purposes you send a PM with your PSC but not post it in the public forum. A vote without PSC will be validated provided the account clearly belongs to a single eligible voter.

5 ) You can print the ballot located here at www.talossa.ca/files/votebymail.php and mail it to the address located at the bottom of the ballot. Keep in mind that votes need to arrive before the election deadline to be valid and voting by mail might take long, especially from a location outside western Europe. (NOTICE: the vote by mail ballot is not fully updated yet.  When voting by mail please keep in mind the instructions on the email ballot or here.)


KEEP IN MIND WHEN VOTING

Especially when voting using a different method than the database, keep in mind the following:

* Specify which part you are voting for. Unspecified party votes will only count towards the Cosa election.

* Write-in parties for the Cosa elections cannot receive votes. A write-in vote has the same effect as Present/Invalid.

* For the Senate part, rank as many eligible candidates as you want in order of preference. Do not include one candidate multiple times. Please include a candidate’s full name or citizen number. Ambiguous votes may be rejected. Write-In votes for eligible citizens are allowed.

* Party votes do not count in any way for Senate elections.

* As per the Organic Law, all votes are final, and cannot be retracted, modified or altered in any way: if multiple votes are sent, only the first one is counted. The only exception is that if you vote on the Cosa part, but forgot to vote on the Senate part, you may add your Senate vote before the election deadline using voting method 1, 2, or 4* (see above). The database admin will then manually insert your Senate vote into the database.

* *In this case, make a new separate post, do not alter your original post.

If you do not wish to vote for a party you can also indicate "PRESENT" for the Party Vote. This counts as vote in regards to keeping your citizenship.
(You risk losing your citizenship if you did not vote or take part in a census during the last two years.)
