There are a few ground rules for this process:

– First, there should be no discussion of candidates on Baronial email lists, forums, or social media sites. Updates to and questions about the polling process, of course, are permitted, but discussion about candidates and platforms, etc. are prohibited. This applies to ALL (not just the candidates) and is to encourage a clean and friendly selection process.

– Second, all polling will be held in confidence. How people vote will NOT be disclosed. No candidates will see the results of the polling, either numbers or individual submissions.

– Third, members and non-members will be allowed to poll.

Please send your Letters of Intent to the Crown, the Kingdom Seneschal, and the Baronial Chronicler.  A courtesy copy to Their Excellencies would be appreciated.

Feel free to contact the Regional or Kingdom Seneschal if you have any questions.
