OOC DISCLAIMER:
Please understand what you are running for. THIS IS A SERIOUS RESPONSIBILITY, both in-character and out of character and IS NOT JUST A TITLE OF PRESTIGE.

We don't mind and endorse non-serious / fun character campaigns to keep things entertaining, but when it gets down to business we need to be solid and serious on the OOC and IC level, which is why we are tying votes to a player and their character at this time, not just one or the other.

Public / State office will change a character / your life within our community. You will be expected to be the embodiment of professionalism of which these offices demand and require. Every action and decision you make will be dissected and criticized, and there will be people that will be rooting for you to fail. Your character's 'social life' will change, your OOC life within our community will change, as you will be expected to sacrifice your time to address matters at an OOC level (forums, meetings, discord, ect), as well as at an IC level.

- The position calls for In Character Campaign and election and presence.
- Out of Character considerations on behalf of the effects of any legislation/act/edict passed.
- Congress (Management) has the right to veto, alter, or adjust any current law (historical practice, checks and balances).
- The Current Governor will shift into an 'Advisory' role for the incoming Governor
- There will be NO OOC CAMPAIGNING, either in public or private mediums.
-
Corruption that damages the reputation of the office may be met with forced permanent punishment (capital punishment) if found guilty of corruption (Constitutional Consideration), and you accept that responsibility.
- Management reserves the right to impeach or remove and replace elected officials who demonstrate they are unfit for the office and position, go inactive, rule breaks, ect.)
