We need to hold elections soon...

I propose we hold elections for the following positions in about a months time...
  • President of Zineon
  • Head of Military
  • Minister of Trade
  • Minister of Dank Memes
  • Minister of Spawn
I also propose that
  1. Candidates can only run for one position per election.
  2. No one with admin privileges on any minetexas server shall be eligible to run for any office
  3. No one with moderator privileges on the forums (includes me) should be eligible to run for President Of Zineon
  4. The candidate with the second-highest number of votes should be made "Deputy" of the office they ran for
  5. Anyone found voting more than once for the same position, will have all of the votes they cast made invalid
  6. Any player found trying to buy votes in an election will have their application removed

Voted. Suggestion though, I would change the presidential position to three months instead. It lets them settle in more, and really have the experience they need

I actually think that a presidential term of 3 months will result in a more stable government and a fairer election.

As all other positions have a term of 2 months, and we have a rule that a player can only be a candidate for one position per election, a presidential term of 3 months would mean more people will stand for election as President.

I believe that this is such a small amendment that I can add it on to the existing motion. If you would like to change your vote, please let me know and I will do that for you.
