  4. [!] An urgent IEC notice is published in the middle of the 1701 Carolustadt by-election, signed by the IEC director. URGENT IMPERIAL ELECTION COMMISSION NOTICE 14th of Harren’s Folly, 1701 “It has come to the attention of the Imperial Election Commission that the Calculus Party nominee, Gleb, cannot provide sufficient evidence of citizenship. In addition, he cannot provide suitable proof of his residency within the capital city of Carolustadt. In accordance with the 1681 Statute of Carolustadt, signed by the late Imperial Majesty, Aurelius I, he is to be disqualified in order to maintain the integrity of our democratic institutions. The Imperial Arch-Chancellor’s office has temporarily seized control of electoral operations, and is in the process of redistributing Calculus Party ballots to their rightful owners. Constituents will be eligible to vote for another candidate of their choice. The Imperial Legion has been deployed in the capital to ensure that disenfranchised voters remain quelled in this time of unrest. Peace must be maintained in the Imperial capital. Without civility, we have nothing. We sincerely apologize for this mishap, an error in government bureaucracy. I, commissioner Rhys var Ruthern, take full responsibility for this oversight, and ensure the grand people of the Empire it shall not occur again.” - Director of the Imperial Election Commission, Rhys Vladrick var Ruthern
  5. [!] The IEC would periodically leave election results pinned on their doors. The 1701 Carolustadt By-Election Results provided by the Imperial Election Commission After the resignation of Aurelian prefect, James Antonius Windsor, the Carolustadt vacancy must be filled. As such, the IEC has conducted the legal process to conduct a by-election in the city, where four eligible candidates registered to run for the seat. Following campaigns, debates, and voter registration, the ballot boxes are open, and the people of Carolustadt will make their voices heard. LIVE RESULTS ((Last updated: 8:52pm EST)) Alexander Frederick Baden (INDEPENDENT): 53% Phillip Marshall (INDEPENDENT): 40% Alexander Liberto (COMMON CIVIC PARTY): 7% CANDIDATES Phillip Marshall As long-time armed service member, Phillip Marshall has long criticized the knighthood system, and believes the Knighthood Meritocracy Act doesn’t go far enough. He has a strong view on voters’ rights, advocating for more proportional representation in the legislative branch, and even going as far as to say that non-humans who follow the Canon and serve the Empire should be allowed to vote, as well. The nearly 96 year-old candidate believes that Parliament has fallen stagnant in recent years, and advocates for a 70% no-confidence procedure be implemented in the event that a constituency feels dissatisfied with their representative. Marshall is an independent. Alexander Frederick Baden Frederick is a Knight-Errant and Master-of-Arms for the Imperial Legion. Much like his opponents, Frederick advocates for the expansion of democratic institutions at the legislative level, specifically by expanding the number of Prefectures. His primary campaign goal has been economic reforms to establish educational institutions, and to subsidize manufacturing industry to generate jobs. Frederick is an independent. Gleb This candidate, who simply goes by “Gleb,” is a member of the aspiring Calculus Party, wanting to spread the joys of learning calculus to the Empire. He advocates for bolstering cultural reforms over economic ones, stating that the fluidity of our globalized economy is something that the government can’t impact as much, and our resources would be better invested towards cultural activities, such as increased festivals and education. Gleb, just like his fellow candidates, believes that all citizens of the Empire should be allowed to vote, but also advocates for cognitive tests to ensure that they’re of a reasonable educational capacity. Alexander Liberto Alexander Liberto is no stranger to politics, working closely alongside the Common Civic Party’s leadership, including during the historic Belvitz campaign of 1987, where CCP nominee Antanios Opal Rutledge just barely squeezed by. Liberto is now running his campaign on the virtue of capitalist values, electoral integrity, voting rights, and military empowerment. ON THE ISSUES Last Saint’s Day, a four-way debate was scheduled between Alexander Liberto, Phillip Marshall, Gleb, and Alexander Frederick Baden. Unfortunatley, CCP nominee Alexander Liberto was not in attendance, but that didn’t stop the other three candidates from engaging in a fiery debate pertaining to their plans for Parliament. We were able to garner their positions on various different political issues, which are all outlined below. Ser Phillip Marshall, Gleb, and Frederick Alexander debate in the Carolustadt Courtroom Phillip Marshall on. . . Voter’s Rights: “Every man and woman over the age of 18, so long as they reside within the Empire, practice the Canon, and support the Emperor deserve the right to vote. Long before Parliament, when we voted for Mayor of the capital, everyone was allowed to vote so long as they were a citizen. And that’s the way it should be today.” Kha Rights: General disdain Taxation: “If you can afford to hold a Barony of Dukedom, you can afford to pay taxes!” Inter-Vassal Conflicts: Unknown Cultural Enrichment: Generally favors festivals Industrial Subsidies: Generally favors industry as a source of employment Education: Unknown Alexander Frederick Baden on. . . Voter’s Rights: “The current system of just three Prefects is not working, and there need to be more Prefects for more areas.” Kha Rights: Total banishment from the Empire Taxation: “The nobility have much greater wealth than the peasants. I’m sure they have enough to give some of that wealth to help out the peasants, may it be for their industries, culture, education and such.” Inter-Vassal Conflicts: Permit inter-vassal conflicts with oversight from the Crown Cultural Enrichment: Prioritize funding elsewhere Industrial Subsidies: Make industry an imperial priority Education: Generally supportive of public institutions Gleb on. . . Voter’s Rights: “Personally, am of opinion that all citizen who prove them of niet stupidity can make vote of candidate.” Kha Rights: Case-by-case basis Taxation: “I wish to make the nobility use their money to enrich the populous culturally.” Inter-Vassal Conflicts: Unknown Cultural Enrichment: Subsidize festivals and other cultural activities Industrial Subsidies: Don’t invest into industry, invest in cultural activities instead Education: Make public education a priority Alexander Liberto on. . . Voter’s Rights: “All people deserve to have their voice in parliament no matter what. Democracy only goes as far as the people do.” Kha Rights: Only be allowed to enter the Empire, nothing more Taxation: “Taxes should have a medium to low range. People should give back to the community, but not be left without enough to support themselves and their family.” Inter-Vassal Conflicts: “If vassals have a problem with each other, then they should settle it like men, in court instead of sacrificing the lives of good soldiers for their petty squabbles.” Cultural Enrichment: “While it is important that we are aware of the world around us, cultural enrichment should, be no means, be the priority.” Industrial Subsidies: “Industry is the machine that keeps the nation running. It is a source of materials, items, resources, and jobs. Although, it should not be valued over the general good of the people.” Education: ”Free, accessible, public education should be highly valued, as the young people of this society are our future, and they cannot go anywhere without knowledge.” HOW TO VOTE All citizens of Carolustadt are eligible to vote. Polling will be open for approximately 24 Saint’s hours. You should have a voter ID card, which resembles the following; If you’ve already been issued a card, you may re-use it. If it’s in your posession, then simply deposit it into the ballot boxes. If you’ve been issued one but haven’t retrieved it since the last election, please pick it up at the IEC office in Carolustadt. If you haven’t been issued one at all, then you can apply by speaking to an IEC director. Voting will take place at Horen Circle 2, the Carolustadt courthouse, to the right of the Imperial Bank. Simply deposit your voting slip into the ballot box with your candidate’s name on the front. We wish all the candidates luck in this race.
