SPECIAL ELECTION – SENESCHAL
During our August, 2022 business meeting, Lady Aoife announced her intent to step down from the role as Seneschal prior to the official end of her current term. 

–A call for candidates was published and Baroness Laurena Mouchot has stepped forward as candidate to serve as Seneschal for the remainder of the term which runs through mid-February, 2024.

–Now, the Shire will hold a Special Election for the position of Seneschal only during this business meeting.  While officer elections generally occur during business meetings via closed ballot, due to current circumstances, an electronic voting mechanism has been created on our Facebook Group (a brief resume of the candidate is included).

–Submit your electronic vote by the start of the meeting on October 9 for your vote to be counted.

You may need to log into your Google account to vote.

Paper ballots will be available at the meeting on Sunday if you would prefer to vote by closed ballot.

Pursuant to our Bylaws, the winner will be that candidate who receives a simple majority of the votes cast. Should the Populace vote to reject all of the candidates for a position, and that position is required by East Kingdom Law or Corpora, the process of holding a new election will begin immediately. In the interim, the Seneschal will make provisions for the performance of any duties of the office required.
