Voting length for motions

Post  Serenel on Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:13 am

Okay, so i think we have it pretty much narrowed down to a Unicamerial Legislature, where all citizens have a seat in the Assembly.

now as an aside, i am for allowing debate to go on for as long as necessary, but on the other hand, when a motion finally makes it to its finaly process, how long should voting on the said motion last?

my opinion, five days is more then enough time to log on and vote for an Act.

what do you guys think?

Sounds like plenty of time to me, but consider possibly six days to provide for the possibility of someone having a busy week and missing out during the weekdays.

I am of the opinion we should leave enough time to allow as many Assembly members as is possible to cast their votes. Therefore I propose a voting period of 7 days.

However, as I am willing to compromise, 6 days seems like a satisfactory amount of time.

Just as a note, many regions allow only 48 to 72 hours for a vote.

That is very true, Two of the other regions I am a member of only allow 72 hour voting and even then that is usually too long and then there is just a day of idle waiting for the official announcement...

so we have 'proposals' if you will for:

2, 3, 5, 6,7.

that makes the average 4.6... so what if we compromise at 4 days?

I am fine with either four or five, especially if that is what this Henry Clayesque "compromise" should dictate.

Uhh, you serious?

How could referencing your compromise to Henry Clay NOT be a compliment?

So wait, is California a "Free State" according to your proposal?

Say what you want about him, he was a badass.

South Carolina was so scared of him, when they tried to leave the Union, he just looked at them funny and they just sulked and got right back in line.

also he had to bleed himself every night because he had a bulliet lodged in him, it was so close to his heart he should of been dead...and he pwned the British in New Orleans...i mean what more can you ask for?

Jackson is the only reason the Civil War didn't happen for another 30 years.

Yes. Back on Topic.

Seems like 4/5 days is most likely going to be the voting period.

Four is good with me, if the time comes that a Bill needs to be made to change that I am sure it could happen. Correct?

well it would probably have to be an amendment.

because the four day rule would be in the constitution, and as such constitutionally mandated to be that long.

if it was not in the constitution, it would be up to the Speaker... or the Assembly if they passed legislation accordingly, but the speaker would still have to set voting length for that motion, which could set precedent.

so it is just simpler to put it in the constitution.
