Governor: Selected in official elections. * represents Admin NPCs. Players in all states are permitted to run for governor.
Next Election (term length): May be changed by a simple majority vote in the state legislature.
Elected By: Two options - public (chosen by voters) and legislature (chosen by simple majority of state legislature). May be changed by a simple majority vote in the state legislature.
Term Limits: Limits on terms served by the Governor. May be changed by a simple majority vote in the state legislature.
Legislature: The party breakdown of the state legislature. This is unofficially chosen by the admins based on players in the state, electoral outcomes, and historic tendencies. For the purposes of roleplay, each state is seen as having 100 members in a unicameral legislature.
Congressional Districts: For states with single-member districts, each member of the House is elected on a separate ballot by voters within a certain district. For states with at-large districts, all members of the House are elected on a same ballot by voters from the entire state with the candidate(s) receiving the most votes being elected. May be changed by a simple majority vote in the state legislature.
Votes Required: If a majority is required, there will be a special runoff election should no candidate receive 50% + 1. The candidates in the bottom half are excluded from the next ballot. This is repeated as necessary until a candidate receives a majority. Elections for all offices within the state (except President) are subject to this rule. If a plurality is required, the winner will be the candidate who received the most votes regardless of the percentage won. May be changed by a simple majority vote in the state legislature.
