  1. Hello great people of the Empire, sadly some of you are here for no reason since this only matters to the SMP9ers as people from other SMPs cannot run. This forum post is to announce the details of the SMP9 Vice Presidential Election and give some other info on the elected official in general. The current and first president of SMP9 is Benthebobjr, who also runs B.T.B. Enterprises and is the General of the SMP9 Imperial Military.

    How to run for Vice President of SMP9
    If you wish to run you should pm benthebobjr on the forums and he will give you more information.
    Anyone who wants to be a candidate has to sign up before April 20th. After the 20th there will be non-counting polls to see who may win. Also during this time there will be a forum post with the speeches the candidates wish to give, these speeches will be pmed to me. The final election is May 1st and ends May 2nd (time will be announced).

    Who can run?
    There are some restrictions to who can run, here is a list of what you must qualify for to run:
    Live primarily on SMP9
    Have been on EMC for more than a year
    Know the difference between the political parties so you know which one to run in
    Have a forums account
    Be ready to serve 1 or more term as a Vice President

    General Elected Official Terms
    As most know the president in a democratic society serves 4 years as 1 term and goes into re-election if they want for a 2nd term, also they can only serve 2 terms. On SMP9 there will be a re-election for both Vice President and President every 2 years, since each term on SMP9 lasts 2 years the President can serve 4 terms, the Vice President can serve as many as they want but after a Vice President becomes a President if they run and win, then they can no longer run for or be a Vice President

  2. You sir, are incorrect.

    Under the Twenty-second Amendment, no person can be elected president more than twice. The amendment also specifies that if any eligible person serves as president or acting president for more than two years of a term for which some other eligible person was elected president, the former can only be elected president once. Scholars disagree over whether a person precluded by the Twenty-second Amendment to being elected president is also precluded to being Vice President.

  3. You should also add another frequently asked question, how did you become president? I never heard anything about any voting.

  6. SMP9 doesn't need a president, SMP9 doesn't want a president.
