    Greetings everyone.
    This is the official election post for the 3rd election! If you’re not already aware of the elections system, click here for more information.

    This election month (August, 2017) there are 5 MP seats open.

    If you want to run for a position in Parliament, you will need to meet these prerequisites:
    • You need to be on the server for at least 1 week;
    • You need to be an active player;
    • You must be active on the forums;
    • You mustn’t be a Staff member or have an application currently under review for Moderator.

    How to run for Parliament
    To run for Parliament and ultimately become 1 of the 5 MPs, you need to be elected by the people. Start off by posting a new thread on the Elections forum. As topic name put <Your Name’s> Election Post (August 2017). This will be your campaign thread, without one you won’t be eligible to run for the MP spot. Here you can introduce yourself to the voters and discuss your ideas with them, answer any questions people may have about your plans and views. In your new thread, you need to have the following information (you don't have to copy it as a format and fill it in, you can word it how you please):
    • Your username
    • Your age
    • Your activity on the server
    • When you joined
    • Why do you think you are suited to be a Member of Parliament
    • What kind of laws would you vote for/against
    • Additional information you believe people should know

    After you write your election thread, you need to reply to this topic with the following message:
    I am <your username> and I am running for the Member of Parliament spot. My election thread can be found here: <link to your election thread>

    Election process
    From this day (August 10th) until August 20th, you will be allowed to post your election campaign thread. From August 20th until August 30th, people will be able to vote for their top candidates and ask questions. The voting will be in a form of a poll on this exact post. On the 20th all of the people who posted their election campaigns will be an option in the poll. On the final day of the month, the new MPs will be announced. Once again, for the full election system, click here.

    Good luck with your campaign!

    I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, but due to real life things, I will no longer be able to be on the server all the time, I hope that if I run in the future, you will revote for me, but for now I must drop out of the Election. Good Luck to all who is running. This does not mean I wont be on the server, but it means that I wont be able to get on as often as I was able to in the past few months.

    Well first off you need to have played the server for at least a week to make an election post. Second, the cutoff for new applicants was last night. Third this is just a stolen mixture of others election post. Fourth you didn't eleven read the format or rules.

    Since there is a 3-way tie for 4th place, what will happen? If all the people who tied get elected, there would be 6 MPs. How will this be resolved?
