    The 1887 Election
    #1
    Election ‘87

    With the recent resignation of Balthazar Urquart comes, predictably, the election of a new leader of Wizarding Britain! The election itself will take place IC on December 13th and OCC from December 2nd to 13th, with campaigning starting now! Do you have interested characters? Excellent. We want them.

    STEP ONE
    Post the following form below on the applicable account, provided that they…
    • Are at least half-human
    • Are 21+ years of age
    • Are alive (sorry, no ghosts!)
    • Have 25+ IC posts
    • Have been active for at least one month (as of the day you enter them)
    Once your post has been liked by a member of staff, you can move on! Please register on or before October 25th.
    Code:
    [b]Character:[/b]
    [b]Age as of September 1, 1887:[/b]
    [b]Notable Accomplishments:[/b]
    [b]Political Leaning:[/b] Far Right, Centre-Right, Centre, Centre-Left, Far Left

    STEP TWO
    Submit an article to the Daily Prophet indicating your character’s intention to run. This article should be written by you yourself and include a bit of background on your character. It should be no fewer than 100 and no more than 400 words in length. This should be published by Ian Pengloss from September 8th to October 31st. Once your article has been published, you can move on!

    STEP THREE
    Campaign! Campaigning can help earn you realism votes (dictated OOC), as well as help to get your name out there for characters to see. What might campaigning entail?
    • Hosting campaign events and rallies*
    • Have these covered in the DP or WW
    • Attending various events and schmoozing
    • Closed-door conversations
    • Publishing a platform in the DP—this should be separate from your announcement for running
    • Posting campaign posters on the community bulletin, or purchasing ad space (UC/MC only—clear with @Ophelia Dippet) in WW
    • Publishing a candidate profile in the DP or WW
    Of course, these are just general ideas. Speak to myself or @Cassius Lestrange with any questions or suggestions!

    *These will not be given forums because otherwise that will get out of hand quickly xD

    CATCHES
    • Only six candidates will make it on the final ballot. On November 1st, staff will decide who four of these are based on qualifications and effort thus far. The remaining two slots will be filled at randomly from the remaining candidates! We will limit these slots to one per player.
    • Candidates can have rumours—positive or negative—circulate about them at any time, without any basis in fact, and without consent.
    • If your character falls inactive at any time and for any reason from the day you sign up until the election, they’re out.
    • If elected, things like character death must be approved by staff with notice. We also will reserve the right to NPC your character in terms of articles should she/he/they fall inactive after election.

    But Kayte, what about the actual voting? As in the past, we’ll be doing a combination of IC voting (for eligible characters), OOC voting (for those who don’t have eligible voters), and Realism Votes to make up the rest of the Wizarding World. A complete list of eligible voters will be released late in November :)

    Got questions? Post ‘em!

    Hey pals! I'm here in a Hagging capacity. I am only publishing one announcement article per day on a first come first serve basis, so it is in your best interest to submit your articles ASAP if you want them to be published sooner rather than later. Make sure that you follow all the instructions in Kayte's 'approved candidate' PM, or I can't schedule them until you do. Thanks! :D

    Piggy-backing off of Beanie to say that if you want any of these campaign-related WW things, you have to ask for them! Scheduling must be done through me, and if your deliverables aren't to my Wenches in time for the deadline, you lose your spot.

    If you previously contacted us about an article and you missed your deadline, you must contact me again to reschedule. You don't get automatically rescheduled to the next available week.
