The Cosâ Vote Correctional Program
WHEREAS mistake frequently occur in the initial of a party on a ballot AND
WHEREAS certain parties, such as the GREY party who became the GCP party changed their initials AND
WHEREAS in other cases, two parties have merges together officially AND
WHEREAS in at least two cases a party received votes and was later hijacked by another person who registered the party to retrieve the votes AND
WHEREAS a voter should not lose a vote or worse, have a vote stolen when the intent of the vote was clear, but different than expressed on the ballot
THEREFORE the Ziu resolves that:
1. The name or abbreviation of a political party applying for registration must not resemble the name or abbreviation of another party. There is a resemblance between party names or abbreviations when, in the opinion of the Secretary of State, there is a risk of confusing them. If the party intends to adopt Talossan and English versions of its name, both versions must be submitted with the application.
2. If during an election to the Cosâ, an elector mistakenly write or type the name or abbreviation of the party he intent to vote for and that in the opinion of the Secretary of State the intention of the voter was clear, the Secretary of State may appropriately correct the vote. Any electors may contest this in Cort.
3. Two or more registered parties may apply to the Secretary of State to merge their parties and become a single registered party. If during an election to the Cosâ, an elector vote for a party that has reported a merge to the Secretary of State prior to the election, the Secretary of State may credit the vote to the new party. Any electors may contest this in Cort.
4. If during an election to the Cosâ, an elector vote for a party that is not registered, and that this vote cannot, under this Act, be attributed to another party, this vote shall be considered “spoiled ballot”. Any electors may contest this in Cort.
