GrandMaster (R-NY) & ranger13 (I-OK) proposes Virtual Census
Bill passes @CollinMatthew @GrandMaster @ranger13
Is this voluntary, as in you don't need to take this to be eligible to vote in future elections?
You will need to be in the census to vote in elections that require a survey monkey. This will also play a part in determining seats in the senate if the senate bill passes.
Okay that just confirmed my nay vote.
This bill needs more detail, very vague.
Section 1. What demographics are you talking about? Also, what if someone is AFK for two to three days, they won't be able to vote, not good.
It was more detailed in the original debate for this bill, but I guess that didn't make it into the language of the bill. The demographics is just referring to the part in section 2 needing a username, state, and party. As far as your other concern we thought 48 hours should be long enough for all VC members to take the census. And for the census to take place once a months as to not leave too big of a gap for new members or people who missed the 48 hour window.
I guess i won't be able to vote on anything for one month due to a vacation...
There's no language in this bill about having this as a requirement to be able to vote...? Are you just implying that?
Then I guess that it was left out so it's not a requirement to vote. The speaker and election managers will probably reference it when determining illegitimate votes.
I encourage everyone to vote yea. This will not only help cut down on fraudulent voting, but it will give everyone a better idea of the makeup of VC.
Yes! Greatly needed and could help with fraud in voting!
Will this contain questions on ethnicity, gender, religion, etc, or just username party and state? Yea either way, just curious
After discussion we think just username, state, and party are all that are needed.
I: Create a Virtual Census to find the demographics of the Virtual Congress.
II: Every 1st day of the month the current speaker will post a survey monkey poll where VC members will be required to state their username, political party and state.
III: This survey monkey poll will remain open for 48 hours.
IV: The speaker of the house will create a page on the VC website to show the demographics from the latest Census.
