Y'know, I kinda feel like this is just partisanship with extra steps.

Does Epic know he was nominated?

He hasn't been active here for a few months.  I sent him an email when he was nominated.  If you have him on social or something, let him know there, too.

I vote for myself.

Case in point:
I vote for Epic. (Does he know he was nominated?)
Are you a member of the Assembly, by the way?

Oh God, I'm sorry. I'll remove my vote.

No worries!  I am thinking, by the way, that we should also look at reforming the Assembly.  This isn't the first time that a sudden rush of interest has descended on our province and some citizens have discovered they missed their chance to join provincial government.  We should maybe look at asking the M3 to contact all provincial citizens directly via the database (which is an option in el Lexh already).

The national election is over and it's almost time to start the 18th Convocation, so we should wrap up this vote.  I don't see how the outcome is going to change either way, since either Epic votes for me or he votes for himself and then Ian P has to break that tie.

I would be a little uncomfortable ending the election before the customary two-week voting period expires unless there is broader agreement in the Assembly, even though I am not sure this Convocation of the Assembly has any more authority to conduct business now that the next one is ready to be convened.

If Epic votes for himself, I would not be in a position to break a tie (since I am no longer GGS), but the best thing to do in that situation would be to not elect a GGS in this election and try again in the 18th Convocation. We probably have to have a GGS election in the 18th Convocation anyway given the provisions of the provincial Constitution.

Okay.  Then I guess I move that this Assembly be dissolved and the new one take up business.
