44RZ3: The Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain Amendment

WHEREAS many citizens of Talossa are uncomfortable with the ballots submitted for elections to the Cosa becoming public knowledge, and

WHEREAS some citizens have expressed concerns that such a system tends to favour one side or another as the ballots come in, or that citizens feel pressure to vote in a particular way, and

WHEREAS technology has advanced to the point where a reliable secret ballot system for such a dispersed community of citizens is possible, and

WHEREAS with proper Organic requirements, such a system can indeed be employed to conduct Talossan elections without eliminating the important advantages that the currently Organically-mandated system provides to the nation, now

THEREFORE be it resolved by the Ziu of the Kingdom of Talossa that the following amendment to Organic Law be recommended to the citizenry for ratification: Section 6 of Article VII of Organic Law ("Elections to the Cosa"), which currently reads, "Voting is not secret. As soon as one's votes are cast, they become public knowledge." is replaced in full by the following text: Votes for the Cosa may be submitted either publicly or privately. Votes submitted privately shall be submitted to and available only to an Electoral Commission, consisting of the Secretary of State and the three Justices of the Uppermost Court. Should any Justice be unavailable to serve on the Commission, the King shall name a Magistrate judge of a subordinate court to replace that Justice, but should no Magistrate such judge likewise be available, the Commission shall serve as otherwise constituted. It shall be a criminal act, punishable as determined by law, for the contents of any such vote to be revealed by any member of the Commission to any other person. The members of the said Electoral Commission shall independently confirm the final tally and together shall certify the election.
