Resolution 172: The Election Tiebreaker Amendment Act
Proposed by KittyCat11231. Endorsed by hvt2011, Skelezomperman, and PtldKnight.
This resolution is a constitutional amendment.
This resolution amends the procedure for what is to occur in the event that a tie should occur when the Electoral Commission is counting the votes in a United Cities Election. This resolution repeals Amendment 36.
In the event that, after the Electoral Commission has certified the final vote tally, for the election to any Officer position there is a tie between the final two remaining candidates, after all other candidates have been eliminated through the instant runoff system prescribed in Amendment 17, the Electoral Commission is to certify a tie, in which there is no declared Officer-elect for the position in which the election to fill ended in a tie, and upon the newly elected Officers for the election in question taking office, such position will be vacant.
If the vacant position in question is any elected Officer position other than the Presidency, the newly elected President shall have the power to choose one of the two candidates who tied in the election for the vacant position, who will immediately assume their position. If this right is not exercised within 24 hours of the President assuming office, the power to fill the vacancy will be passed along the line of Presidential succession, and each Officer in the line of succession will have 24 hours to choose a President before the right to fill the vacancy passes further down the line of succession.
If the vacant position in question is the Presidency, the newly elected Vice President will assume duties as the Acting President, as defined by Amendment 20, and shall have the power to choose one of the two candidates who tied in the election for the Presidency, who will immediately assume power as President of the United Cities. If this right is not exercised within 24 hours of the Vice President assuming office, the power to choose the President will be passed along the line of Presidential succession, starting with the Secretary of State, and each Officer in the line of succession will have 24 hours to choose a President before the right to choose the President passes further down the line of succession.
In the event that, when calculating the votes in a race with more than two candidates, the Electoral Commission should find that, in any round of instant runoff, two or more candidates have tied in the number of votes for last place, and no candidate has received more than 50% of votes, all candidates who tied are to be eliminated in the round in question, and their votes redistributed in the next round in accordance with Amendment 17. Should this occur in a round where there is only one candidate who did not tie for last place, the candidate who has received a plurality of the vote shall have won the election.
