Who are we electing?
- The Chief Elder - runs the Village Council and leads the other Elders in running the government
- Each of the Elders:
-- Master of Culture - responsible for "ensuring an entertaining and rich culture in the Community, including organizing cultural events and activities for community holidays, and promoting this culture to the region and the world"
-- Master of Integration - responsible for "recruiting new members to the Community, promoting activity on all regional media platforms, involving new members in regional events and occupations, and working with the World Assembly Delegate to raise Meihua's World Assembly participation"
-- Master of Guests - responsible for "establishing new diplomatic ties for the Community, maintaining and communicating with existing diplomatic relations, communicating to the outside world, and handling on-site embassies"
-- Master of Stories - responsible for "creating, organizing, and involving residents in roleplay activities"
How long are we electing them for?
We'll figure out once we write the Elections Ordinance! 😛 The idea is to get things running first, so we're not stuck forever waiting for me to fulfill my promises...
What happens if no one runs for a position?
I'll coordinate with the Chief Elder on how best to fill the position for now. The most likely outcome is that I'll serve as that position until someone else wants to take it.
What's the election schedule?
Nominations/standing period - November 27 @ 14:00 EST to November 31 @ 14:00 EST

How are we voting?
Rank the candidates listed in each of the voting threads in any order. Place your most-preferred candidate at the top of your list, and the least preferred candidate at the bottom. You do not have to rank all candidates (simply leave off any you are not ranking from the list). You may rank candidates equally if you wish, in which case you should write Candidate1 = Candidate2 on a single line. Additionally, place a line (___) between the candidate furthest down the list whom you approve of an the first candidate on the list whom you disapprove of.
Here's a sample ballot:
