Change of Status Polling

Change of Status Polling

Greetings unto the Populace of the Shire of Buckland Cross!

The Populace Polling Ballots for Change of Branch Status and Baron/Baroness Selection are currently being printed, and will be mailed by the end of this week. All paid members currently residing in the Shire of Buckland Cross will receive one. If you do not receive one, and you are a paid member residing within the shire boundaries, please contact the Shire Seneschal.

In this polling you are being asked two questions; your preference in Change of Status from the Shire of Buckland Cross to the Barony of Buckland Cross, and your candidate preference for the position of Baron/Baroness. If you agree with the Change of Status, please check the box indicating that preference, and select a candidate or pair of candidates from those listed. If you do not agree with the Change of Status, please check the box indicating that preference and return the polling.

As per Kingdom Law, the polling is by mailed ballot. Their Majesties wish to hear from every eligible member. Even if you abstain, please check that choice and return the polling. 50% of the ballots mailed must be returned for the polling to be valid. If you receive a ballot and are not eligible to vote, please do not choose a candidate but do return the polling anyway.

If this polling is for a child in your household who is under 14 years old, please check that choice and return the polling anyway. Children 14 and older may vote.

For your ballot to be counted, it must be received by Nov. 30th, 2017. This ballot must be completed in its entirety and signed with your legal (not SCA) name. If you do not complete all areas correctly, your polling will not be counted.

Yours in Service,
THL Auddeilen ap Robet
on behalf of the Officers of the Shire

Clarification: Please note that regardless of your choice on the question of “Change of Status”, you may still select a candidate of your choice for the position of Baron / Baroness. The two votes are being treated completely separately.
