Delegate Election - June 2021: Nominations

The June 2021 delegate election season has begun!
Please familiarize yourself with The East Pacific, and the candidates in this race.

As Viceroy of the East Pacific, it is my duty to open this election. The nomination period has now BEGUN. Any citizen may nominate any citizen. Nominations must be made in this thread only! Please be advised of the following circumstances:
(1) Self-nominations ARE allowed, but they must be seconded by another citizen. Once that happens, the nominee may open up their campaign thread.
(2) If someone is nominated by another citizen, they may accept, decline, or ignore their nomination. If they accept, the nominee may open up their campaign thread.

NOTICE TO NOMINEES

Be advised, only nominees that fit in one of the above two categories will be included on the ballot. Campaign threads must be posted in this sub-forum. Campaign threads should include the nominee’s platform; that is, their plan to guide The East Pacific as its next delegate. Citizens may ask campaigners questions, comment, etc. Campaigners are allotted only one thread. Non-running citizens should not start threads here - they’ll be moved to the archives section. Flaming will not be tolerated here. In addition, electioneering (campaigning for votes in private chats, campaigning on the RMB, sending out telegrams, etc) is not permitted. Keep campaigning limited to this sub-forum and the dedicated #delegate-elections Discord channel only.

Also, do not attempt to subvert the system here. One citizen, one vote. Administrators and the Conclave will be monitoring the votes and making sure we adhere to that rule. Anyone caught attempting to unlawfully gain votes will face serious legal and forum-based repercussions pending trial. The tradition of proper election behavior is strong enough to be considered as an effective binding norm and can possibly be used against you. You do not want the landmark TEP election case disqualifying a candidate or voter being called “TEP v. Your Name”.

OF NOTE

You will be unable to vote if you have not been confirmed a citizen before the time that these nominations begin.

  • These elections will be overseen to check on any multi-votes or other election improprieties. Other members of the Conclave may be brought in to assist in administering these elections if necessary.
