Quorum Definition

Post by Comrade Frank on Thu Nov 27, 2014 7:50 am

Original Copy
1.1:  Quorum

1.11: Definition of a Quorum
A Quorum, the minimum number of votes necessary for any measure to become law whether those votes are “yes” votes, “no” votes, or abstentions.

1.12: Requirement for Quorum to have been deemed reached
Quorum size shall be based on a weekly sign-in thread on the forum. If the number of sign-ins is odd, then quorum is half that number rounded up to the nearest integer. If the number of sign-ins is even, then quorum is half that number plus 1.

1.2 Proposals, Votes, and Laws

1.21 Proposals
Before a proposal can be made, a member of Congress (hereafter "member") must pose the subject for discussion and allow 24 hours to pass.  The SOH or DSoH may waive this requirement if necessary.  Ten members must approve an identically worded proposal for it to come to a vote.

1.22 Voting
Voting on proposals will last 24 hours but may be extended for up to 72 hours by the SOH or DSoH at their discretion.  All members may vote. Only votes in the form of "yes" "no" or "abstain" will be counted. Proposals that require a 2/3rd majority in game to execute or Amendments to the Constitution will require a 2/3rd majority to pass. Any member may start a voting thread for a proposal after it reaches 10 approvals.  A member may change his or her vote at any time before the voting period ends.

1.23 Becoming Law
If a quorum of votes are cast (see 1.1 "Quorum"), and the required number of votes cast approve, the proposal becomes law.  Proposals amending the constitution require affirmative votes that meet or exceed 2/3 of the weekly sign-in thread for the week.  The final tally shall be performed by the SoH or a DSoH, who shall announce the final results.

1.1:  Quorum

1.11: Definition of a Quorum
A Quorum, the minimum number of votes necessary for any measure to become law whether those votes are “yes” votes, “no” votes or a non vote of 'abstention'; which will not count towards meeting quorum.

1.12: Requirement for Quorum to have been deemed reached
Quorum size shall be based on a weekly sign-in thread on the forum, sign in period will last 24 hours; with no extensions possible. Only members who sign in for quorum will be eligible to vote during the present week (hereafter Quorum Congressmen). If the number of sign-ins is odd, then quorum is half that number rounded up to the nearest integer. If the number of sign-ins is even, then quorum is half that number plus 1.

1.2 Proposals, Votes, and Laws

1.21 Proposals
Before a proposal can be made, a member of Congress (hereafter "member") must pose the subject for discussion and allow 24 hours to pass.  Only the member who started the discussion may start an identically worded proposal, which must receive ten members approval; the members who started the proposal may then start an identically worded vote.

1.22 Voting
Voting on proposals will last 24 hours.  Only Quorum Congressmen members may vote. Only votes in the form of "yes" or "no" or a non vote of 'abstention'. Proposals that require a 2/3rd majority in game to execute or Amendments to the Constitution will require a 2/3rd majority of Quorum Congressmen to pass. Only the member who started the discussion and proposal may start a voting thread for a proposal after it reaches 10 approvals.  A member may change his or her vote at any time before the voting period ends.

1.23 Becoming Law
If a quorum of votes are cast (see 1.1 "Quorum"), and the required number of votes cast approve, the proposal becomes law.  Proposals amending the constitution require affirmative votes that meet or exceed 2/3 of the weekly sign-in thread for the week.  The final tally shall be performed by the SoH or a DSoH, who shall announce the final results.
(If a simple majority quorum of votes are cast?)
