2005 Otterville Election - Part I - Nominations & Party Affiliations

OK.. As most of you know.. Das and I took office on July 28th of 2004.
We are coming up on our 1 year term limit, so its time to <s>reelect us</s> have the 2005 election.

As VP, it appears that I get the honor of running this. Although I plan to delegate some of the tasks. So anyone interested in helping out, step forward!

This first thread, will be dedicated to nominating potential candidates. These candidates will be then declare their party affiliations.. The candidates can name their own party, once they receive the 2nd nomination.

There will be a vote, with a minimum % of votes required to make the ticket.

After this, the candidates will name their running mates, and begin campaigning.. Then closer to the end of July. We will prepare for the real election (to be held on Tuesday, July 26th, 2005).

So far now.. Nominations are being accepted.
since Im making the rules.. I say you cant nominate yourself. You can however declare your intentions to run. I will then add you to the list. If you receive 2 official nominations.. You will be added to the candidate list.

You can only nominate 1 person

THERE IS NO NEED TO PICK A RUNNINGMATE YET! WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE PRIMARIES

I'm announcing my bid for 3rd party candidacy again. It seems though that Twikoff is changing the rules so I might not be able to vote for myself this time. :/

I think there should at least be a write-in vote option on the election day thread.
