All citizens of Cézembre have the right to vote and/or be a candidate in this election.

Quote from: Glüc da Dhi S.H. on July 14, 2024, 03:51:27 AMWhat about A8: The Sénéchal Elections Act?
Seems to be relevant only if more than one candidate ?

https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=2719.0 discusses this in more detail, and perhaps there was confusion since we no longer elect l'Etats but allow those interested to just declare for a seat via the Referendum described at https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=3250.0 the only thing being decided is the Sénéchal

Perhaps another referendum is in order such that those involved in l'Etats could just vote on the leader rather than the process of having an election for this single office (which in turn is indeed moot if there is only one candidate).  That way, anyone who is interested in being in l'Etats can simply declare that they want a seat, and l'Etats could select or depose a leader at any time -- not just in a specific window following the elections at the level of the realm (as this is a time when people might be less attentive anyway.) 

I'm thinking that the person that would become Sénéchal would already be a seated member of l'Etats, but I suppose it also possible that l'Etats could select some other citizen of Cézembre to that rôle central if it were of interest to have a separation of powers.

With no other candidate before the due date (July 14th), I can proudly announce that I remain Sénéchal de Cézembre for this 60th Cosā.
A great thanks to my fellow co-members of l'Etats, and to all citizens of our nicest Province.
Liberté, égalité, hilarité ! (et Muscadet)
