Election Results
« on: January 08, 2014, 02:57:18 PM »
I propose that in the future we make it standard practice to keep election results hidden until the voting period is over.

I concur.  :)

Also, should we permit people to switch their vote whilst the poll is in operation? We have the ability to do that and if we're writing a bill clarification on that might be good too. (So say it's 7 days starting Mon: I vote on Monday, then on Wednesday decided I'd rather abstain from voting for Spatharios or whatever, I could do so, such that votes are only definitely finalised when the poll ends).

I agree that both changing your vote throughout voting period and keeping the voting secret  are good ideas.

And certainly keep it secret if votes can be changed.

Do I need to write this as a bill, or can someone else have a go?  :P

On that note, should I write a "how to write motions" guide?

I can write the guide.


How to Write Motions

by comrade_general

Okay, just put what you want to motion in asterisks, like so: *waves hello*.

And that's it.


In all seriousness isn't it the Seb's job to write bills?

I'm pretty sure anybody can write a motion, maybe it's the Seb's job to actually implement it if one passes?

Othko is correct here. It's the Seb's job to implement bills and help people who want to write them; it would also be expected that if the Seb has a personal or party manifesto they write the necessary bills to do the things they said they'd do.  :)
