Hello everyone, welcome to the SBM election! This is a thread I came up with a few days ago, so I thought I'd give it a shot. This is a thread that needs active participants. If you read this, I'd greatly appreciate if you'd participate, that'd make the game a lot more fun :)

Anyway, this is by no means a real election (Obviously, given its placement in the Krabby Land subforum). To start off this election, we'll create our own fake political parties, then nominate users for the parties (I'd say a maximum of four parties). Depending on how many users are nominated, we'll include primaries to chose the official nominees of the parties. Users who participate will be given the chance to represent a state (For both the primaries & general election), whether it's your home state, or if you don't want to represent your home state, any state, really.

So, basically here are some rules to be used down the line to avoid any confusion.

1.) You may only nominate one member for your party. Other users can nominate members for the same party, but each can only nominate one. You can not nominate for more than one party.
2.) If not enough users participate to represent all the states (Which I know there won't be), I will assign the participants states to represent via RandomWheel.
3.) Yes, you can nominate users who aren't active on the site. Even banned users, too (Say, create a "Banned Party" with TheWolverine as your nominee).
4.) For the primaries, whoever is associated with the political party per primary will chose/be given states to represent in the primaries (Anyone not a part of that party, obviously, can't vote in that specific primary)
5. To keep things from being as confusing as actual primaries are, we'll go by the basic electoral college map, the one who reaches 270 wins (In case they don't reach 270, we'll go by the majority winner)
6. For the general election, everyone will be given states (They have the chance to grab at least 5 states, 1 they get to chose, 4 are assigned to them [That way they won't rig it and go directly for the bigger states])
7. Any remaining states will be distributed randomly to each user.
8. The voting results will be posted by your's truly.

Alright, let's start the game! We'll need at most, 4 political parties. I'll represent the "Banned Party", and I cast my nominee vote for Todd Phillips.

Question, I am not from the US, can I represent my home province, it seems we're only doing US states, which makes us Canadians feel like imagination Americans.

Anyways I nominate Bob Carotte of the Eggplant Party for the office.

Unfortunately, I can only do US states for this election. Reason being, I'm using the https://www.270towin.com/ site to draw up the electoral college maps for this election. If this game is successful, maybe I'll draw up a sequel, expanding to different countries (And if those countries have provinces/states, I could include them to determine the overall result of the country (Kind of like counties play a role in a state's determination of who carries the state, though yes, I know that's not exactly how these elections work, but you get the drift). Unfortunately for this game, you're stuck with just United States. This will be a test run, though, to see if I should do a sequel to broaden this concept.

Anyway, as of now, here are the candidates entered into the race.

Banned Party
Todd Phillips

Squnschpunsch Party
Prez

Eggplant Party
Bob Carotte

Alright, dead for almost a week! I got the best track record on threads :thumbsup:

On to the main election! @OWN, @FinnDinner, @hippythehippo, @Felix Hawkins

You all have the choice of selecting one state. Your other 4 will be randomly assigned to you. For my state, I chose to represent Pennsylvania.
