Six people for five seats. I imagine that this contributed to the lack of 'debate', though I must say I was surprised at the way the elections took place. I was expecting a notice from someone asking us to all get together to present ourselves or some such thing. This was my first time running, so I had no idea what to expect and the guidelines and information posted are worded in a way that really just leads to more confusion - it sounds VERY professional and almost daunting, yet here I was trying to place campaign posters without proper permissions to do so. I was only able to place campaign posters on my own parcels.
Twas only a few days ago that I was able to actually place my campaign (notegiver) posters in public places.
And yes, Nolligan in the voting process you choose 5 people out of those 6 and place them in the order of preference. Definitely an easier task if you have an idea of who some of these people are!
I apologize for not being more communicative, though I tried my best. I did place a mail bag on each of my parcels in Colonia Nova to allow for notecards to be given to me, and I did spend many hours each evening wandering the Sims to see if I could meet with someone. I only found Shep, and Rosie who both assisted me with placing my campaign posters
I wasn't aware that I myself could call a meeting or a Meet the Candidate, so I was awaiting on something put forward by the group. My apoologies.
