Please refrain from using all caps

Unionists,

The General Assembly has been busy recently. As Chairperson, I recently appointed Zeneste my Deputy Chairperson to help me manage the Assembly. Zeneste has a fresh perspective on regional affairs and I am confident that he can manage the General Assembly. Additionally, I recently appointed myself Chair of the Union Day Committee. I am excited to work with Speaker Nuevo San Miguel once he returns from a LOA l to fill the remainder of the seats on the committee. Finally, the Motion to Amend the Constitution was introduced and is now in the amendment period. I encourage you to read and comment on these recent undertakings by clicking on the links below.

Election Rules:


THE UNION OF DEMOCRATIC STATES
LinkForum LinkDiscord LinkCitizenship Master Dispatch Constitution Embassy Policy Guide

Master DispatchChancellery Dispatch IndexElection Rules



Per 6.6 of the LinkConstitution, the Chancellors have a mandate to manage regional elections, including the election of a President, Senators, a Chairperson, and Justices when vacancies arise on the Supreme Court. Because rigorous elections are the hallmark of a healthy constitutional republic, rules are necessary to ensure that elections are thoughtful, campaign processes are consistent and understandable, and spam is minimized. Although not required, candidates are encouraged to post campaign threads within LinkLiberty Square on the Linkregional forum to provide a designated place for dialogue between campaigns and the voters. Voters are encouraged to engage with each candidate through designated campaign threads and discussion within these and all campaign spaces is expected to be thoughtful. Finally, the Chancellors place ballot quality and security as top priorities. We ask for your patience when handling elections. Any questions concerning the election process or this document in particular can be directed to the Office of the Chancellor.



1. The NationStation Rules, LinkDiscord Terms of Service, LinkProboards Terms of Service, UDS Administrative Team Rules, and Linkregional law must be obeyed at all times.

2. All campaign messages are expected to be thoughtful. Spam, or the posting of multiple repetitive messages is prohibited. Spam of images and elementary phrases such as “Vote for Testlandia” will not be tolerated.

3. The Office of the Chancellor is the sole authority on the interpretation and enforcement of these rules. Should an action come close to but not necessarily violate the text of these rules, the Office of the Chancellor may determine wrongdoing.

4. The Office of the Chancellor may amend these rules at any time without warning. Candidates and voters are expected to familiarize themselves with these rules.

5. Violation of these rules may result in action taken against the offender, including the possibility of removal from the ballot.



1. Regional Officers (ROs) are forbidden from using their permissions to influence the outcome of an election. No RO with the “communications” permission may send a region-wide telegram supporting a campaign. No RO with the “appearance” permission may promote a campaign on the world factbook entry.

2. Telegrams concerning a campaign must be limited to one recipient at a time. The use of the regional API or stamps for the dissemination of telegrams concerning a campaign are prohibited.

3. Candidates are permitted to make one small to medium-sized RMB post concerning their campaign wherein they may cite their forum campaign thread but may not post their platform in full. Such posts must include the following message at the bottom:

“[b][u]Attention[/u]: This is an RMB campaign post concerning an ongoing election. As not to accumulate spam, please do not respond here to this post and familiarize with our regional Election Rules. Please direct any responses to Liberty Square on the regional forum.[/b]”



1. All forum campaigning must be limited to the LinkLiberty Square sub-forum under Union Center.

2. Campaigns must limit their primary promotional activities to one clearly marked campaign thread.

3. All players are welcome to respond and discuss candidate-related matters in a candidate’s campaign thread.



1. All discord campaigning must be limited to the #campaign-channel on the UDS discord server.

2. The use of images shall be prohibited.

Regards,
The Noble Thatcherites and Khevo
The Office of the Chancellor
