Greeting to people of Ramshaven from Duchess Rylyn Buchanan,
I have been tasked with running the upcoming Baronial poll to help Their Majesties choose who will succeed our wonderful Penn and Lucia. It is my job to ensure that the polling runs smoothing and according to policy. You can find the up-to-date Ramshaven policy at Ramshaven Baronial Selection Procedure and the relevant Kingdom Policy, section 5.
The two couples that have agreed to stand, and been acceptable to Their Majesties and Highnessess are:
The Honourable Lord Henry Foster and The Honourable Lady Bridget Larkin
The Honourable Lord Dietrich von Sachsen and Ollamh Emer ingen uí Áiden, OL
Candidate profiles can be viewed here.
On behalf of everyone, I want to thank them for their willingness to stand for this office.
How will this all work?
It is vital that the people of Ramshaven to make an informed decision before casting their poll. There will be series of candidate meetings, one for each canton. These meetings will be facilitated by me and will be held as question-and-answer period. These meeting have been scheduled for the following times:
Canton of der Welfengau
Sunday Feb 12 from 1 until 3 pm
Guelph Curling club
816 Woolwich Street, Guelph
Canton of Northgeatham
Saturday Feb 18 from 2 to 4 pm
973 Concession Rd 8, Tiverton
Canton of Bryniau Tywynnog
Tuesday Feb 28 for 7 to 9 pm.
Scholar’s Hall school
888 Trillium Dr, Kitchener
At the end of each meeting, people will have an opportunity to express their preferences by ranked choice ballot. All ballots given out at the meeting must be returned or will be considered spoiled. There is no requirement that you poll at the meeting associated with your canton.
In addition, there will be an opportunity to cast ballots at Winter War in Trinovontia Nova on March 4, though no Q&A period will take place. That will take place between 12 and 1.
If you cannot make any of these times, please contact me for a mail in ballot. Ballots must be back to me, no later than March 8, 2023.
Who eligible to receive a ballot?
Any person that has an address inside the Baronial borders is eligible. If I am unsure as to your residency, I reserve the right to ask for proof. If you live outside the Baronial Borders and wish to poll, please contact me immediately to chat about it. Both members and non-members can receive ballots but those ballots will be tallied and reported to TRM and TRH separately.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
