[Chancery] Official 57th Cosa Voting Station
« on: March 15, 2022, 08:10:40 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 March 2022 General Elections to elect the 57th Cosa, provincial assemblies and 3 senate seats in addition to the three referenda on amendments to the Organic Law is now active.

You can find the election rules here: http://www.talossa.ca/files/electionrules.php

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.

WHAT TO VOTE ON

If you vote on witt, please include the following parts:
(On witt your vote will always be public.)

Part 3: Cosa Election
For the Cosa, please vote for the party you want to vote for.

5 parties have registered:

  • Free Democrats (FreeDems)
  • Talossan National Congress (TNC)
  • Raßemblamaintsch dels Citaxhiens Talossáes (RCT)
  • Parti da Reformaziun (PdR)
  • The Independent Monarchist (Dien)

More information about these parties (50 word statements, leaders, link to party platform, etc) can be found on your ballot, on the online voting form and on the election rules page.

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.)

Part 5: Referendum
There are three  referenda this year:

RZ9 - The Small OrgLawAmendment (Seneschal's Rights in the Hopper) Act
RZ10 - The Small OrgLawAmendment (Dignity of the Tuischach'h) Act
RZ11 - Amendment on Reserved Seats for New Citizens

You may vote Për (in favour), Contrâ (against), or Abstain on these amendments.
The full texts can be found by clicking the links.

Part 6: Senate Election
Please include your vote for Senator if you are a citizen of any of the following provinces: Maricopa, Maritiimi-Maxhestic, Fiova

To vote for Senate, list 1 or more (the database ballot accepts up to 5) eligible citizens of your province in order of preference!

If you leave this empty your vote will count as abstain and your vote for the other parts will still be valid.
Important: votes for a party do NOT count here. You will need to vote for an individual candidate.

The following candidates have registered for senate seats:
Maricopa -   Þon Txoteu É. Davinescu
Maritiimi-Maxhestic - Ian Plätschisch
Fiova    - Gödafrïeu Válcadác'h

Write-in votes for Senate are also allowed

- Atatürk

- Benito
(For the Benito Legislative Assembly, please vote for a party, or PRESENT if you wish to cast a null ballot.)

- Florencia
(Vote for a party or vote "present")

- Fiova
Ranked choice voting, same as for Senators

If you leave this empty your vote will count as abstain and your vote for the other parts will still be valid.

WHEN TO VOTE

Any time between 15 March 07:00 TST and 1 April 19:30 TST (UTC-5) (This corresponds to 19:30 in Milwaukee (WI), USA)

This is officially a vote.

Your vote for Senate is invalid, as Txoteu Davinescu is from Maricopa and cannot sit as the Senator from Maritiimi Maxhestic. Please update your vote with a valid choice before I can enter the vote. Otherwise, that option will be left blank thus disenfranchising yourself.
