Voting is conducted by the government and a very select few others. We vote to disputes, elect officials, create new laws, etc. Voting is done by a certain procedure: 1. A member of The Cabinet calls the vote. 2. The Senate, Cabinet and other people with voting rights vote. 3. The votes are tallied and the result is announced.
A vote usually lasts anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 days, depending on the importance of the vote. Not everyone who can vote, must vote. Furthermore, everyone's vote does not equal 1. The closer you are to the Supreme Leader, the more your vote is worth. Example: The Supreme Leaders' vote is worth 5, and his second in command's vote is worth See The List for more information on voting in the U.M.S.M. This list is in order from the most recent to the oldest votes.
