We are pleased to announce that nominations for Eleventh Galactic Senate are now OPEN!
Nominations for players wishing to stand for election to one of the TWELVE Senate seats, for a 6-MONTH term of office, should be posted in this thread no later than 2pm PDT / 4pm CDT / 5pm EDT / 10pm BST on FRIDAY, August 6th, 2021. Nominations received AFTER this deadline will not be considered.
An overview of the Galactic Senate Program together with its aims and the responsibilities of Senators can be found here.
Candidates for the Galactic Senate must have a well-rounded knowledge of Star Wars Galaxies and be willing and able to talk confidently about any aspect of the game.
The election process will take five weeks, and will consist of a two-week nomination period for players to nominate themselves or another player, providing they have that nominee's approval, as a candidate for the Galactic Senate. Staff will review the nominations made and a final list of candidates will then be posted. The nominated candidates will then have a series of debates scheduled at different times between the dates of August 7th through August 14th, 2021. Once finished, these candidates will go forward as the final candidates to be voted on by the community when the voting opens in-game on SATURDAY, August 14th, 2021 at 4pm PDT / 6pm CDT / 7pm EDT / Midnight (August 15th) BST. The voting closes at the same times on SATURDAY, August 28th, 2021.
Once the polls are closed, the votes will be tabulated and the Acting Senate Liaison will announce the results. All newly-elected Senators will serve a six month term of office starting on WEDNESDAY, September 1st, 2021.
IF NECESSARY, IN THE EVENT OF A TIED VOTE, THE ACTING SENATE LIAISON WILL CAST THE DECIDING VOTE.
