47RZ18: The election ballot act

WHEREAS Section B, Article 2 of El Lexhatx is the article concerning the electoral ballot AND

WHEREAS that article is a single block of text AND

WHEREAS this author wants to make a small change in that block of text but can't find a way to insert it

THEREFORE the Ziu resolves to modify Section B, Article 2 of El Lexhatx which currently read as:

2. The Secretary of State shall make available, through a website dedicated to this purpose, the text of the election ballot. The ballot shall, for the next general election, contain a space for a yes or no vote on Organic Law amendments passed during this Cosa, as well as contain spaces for provincial and senatorial voting. (The legality of votes cast for provincial and senatorial elections on the ballot shall be dependent on voters' approval of said laws in a public referendum, on the same ballot.) The ballot shall be in a .pdf or other graphical format. The ballot shall have space on it for the voter to indicate his name and relevant contact information. Clear voting instructions in both Talossan and English will be included with each ballot. In order to be counted in the election, the ballots must be received by the Secretary of State on or before election day. (33RZ5)

To be split into sub-articles as follows:

2. The Secretary of State shall make available, through a website dedicated to this purpose, the text of the election ballot.

2.1 The ballot shall, for the next general election, contain a space for a yes or no vote on Organic Law amendments passed during this Cosa, as well as contain spaces for provincial and senatorial voting.
2.2 (The legality of votes cast for provincial and senatorial elections on the ballot shall be dependent on voters' approval of said laws in a public referendum, on the same ballot.)
2.3 The ballot shall be in a .pdf or other graphical format. The ballot shall have space on it for the voter to indicate his name and relevant contact information.
2.4 Clear voting instructions in both Talossan and English will be included with each ballot.
2.5 In order to be counted in the election, the ballots must be received by the Secretary of State on or before election day. (33RZ5)

And then, new article 2.2 is removed as it is no longer applicable and was apparently ephemerous in nature, pending past amendments and is replaced by:

2.2 The Ballot can also include for each referendum up to two 50-words essays, one in favor of the amendment and one against the amendment, composed to reflect various arguments in favor or against said referendum. The argument's signature are not counted in the 50 words limit. In case of a problem reaching a consensus, the chancery can appoint a committee composed of key defenders of that position and an impartial member of the bar.

Furthermore, article 2.3 is modified as follow:

2.3 The ballot shall be available in a .pdf or other graphical format. The ballot shall have space on it for the voter to indicate his name and relevant contact information or said information pre-filled by the Chancery.
