As you may be aware, when the Group Management team took on the mantle of facilitating a functioning government on SAES and facilitating elections for that government we announced that there would be a new election cycle every 4 months.
August 1st marks 4 months from our previous elections, so here we are - a new election cycle is upon us.
This means that anyone who intends on taking part in the upcoming elections/government cycle should have a quick read of this topic and register either yourself, or a candidate, prior to the time given on the topic.
Registration for the election will close on July 30th at 23:59 server time.
The polls will open on August 1st at a time yet to be determined and run until August 4th at 6pm server time.
I would encourage everyone who wishes to participate, to do so.

Generally I would now leave a personal thank you to the previous senators and government.
With a heavy heart I'm unable to do that this time, this has been potentially one of the worst 4 month periods for the Government since it was passed to Group Management.
I am extremely disappointed that a party was only focused on winning and not actually governing. It's extremely disappointing to see people put 20 times more effort into campaigning for spots to win than the actual running of the government.
We attempted to inject life into the government but ultimately were unsuccesful, despite offering ideas and funding for projects.
I would encourage everyone who is interested to run but please be willing to put as much (if not more) effort into actually running the government, than running for the government.
Any ideas and initiatives you have will be supported in any way we can. If you leverge our assistance, it's there.
Best of luck,
