Guidelines Marked Paper Ballots #e-aps-18 for Los Angeles City Micro-state (ss11-9-1)

James Ogle's marked paper ballot #e-aps-18 on 4/1/2021 as follows:
NOTES: https://usparliament.org/stv.php

Proposed Bylaws and Parliamentary Proceedures of the Los Angeles City Micro-state, California (ss11-9-1).

1 The name of this political entity shall be the Los Angeles City Micro-state (ss11-9-1).

2 Once the paper ballots (e-aps-19-marked) are counted on April 1st 2021 the entity shall remain in effect for one or more years, and the exact dates are made in perpetual "votes of confidence" on these guidelines/rules, the dates will depend on those votes in these guidelines by elected Directors only.

3 Ranked choice voting (RCV): All voting and vote counting shall be in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable).
Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all names and decision-items. Deviation from this guideline #1 will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked "SPOILED", separated from the stack of ballots with numerical purity and only the pure stack after being separated from the spoiled ballots are considered democratically legit.

4 Election of Names Under Pure Proportional Representation (PPR) - The Election of names are only held in multiple-winner election districts of two or more only using limited voting with no exceptions.
Limited voting using "Xs" brings semi-proportional results and limited voting using ranked choice votes (RCV) brings pure proportional representation (PPR).
Limited voting is used where there are fewer votes cast per voter than there are open seats at-large. By using ranked choice voting (RCV) each paper ballot is one whole vote, one-man-per-vote and each uses the single transferable vote (STV).
There are two equations involved that are used for PPR. First is the Hagenbach-Bishoff Method with the Hare or Droop Quotas and the second is the single transferable vote (STV).

5 Elections of Decision-items - Many decision-items may be ranked simultaneously to save time and that's where each numeral starting with #1 is like one whole vote. Any item attaining 50% plus one vote or more is considered approved "by the team".
In decision-making items, ranked choice voting (RCV) is always used, with no exceptions.
There is no STV when using RCV with decision-items.
In cases of ties, we add the sum of all numerals (or "tics"), and the item(s) in a tie with the lowest sum of rankings gets prioritized above items with larger sums of the rankings. This system is known as "1Ogle Method" or "Count the Tics".

6 MarchMadness2021 shall last no longer than 11:59 pm on April 1st 2021.

7 All Fakertarians' MarchMadnesses in the future shall last no longer than one year through 11:59 pm on April 1st.

8 All BoDs may serve for one year through 11:59 pm on April 1st 2022.

9 On April 2nd 2021 after the correct vote totals are approved by the top-ranked name from the eballots, the top-ranked name picks their own title President and/or Chair, or Vice President and/or Vice Chair, or they may make up a new title within the first 48 hours after April 1st, and the choices are subject to change depending on last minute paper ballots arriving by US mail that met the March 31st deadline via post-marked envelope. 

10 For one year each consecutively ranked name picks the top title available until all seven executive seats are filled.

11 When an executive seat is open, each Elector may pick the open seat in day-by-day steps that are in the same order corresponding with each of the elected Directors rankings from the April 1st vote count. 

12 President (#1-ranked) or Vice President (#2-ranked) have the highest priority in all cases and may be picked only by #1 or #2 or visa versa. Should #1 and #2 not pick another title then their name will remain President and Vice President for the full term of the entire assembly entity.

13 Once the titles President and Vice President, as well as Chair, Vice Chair, Deputy Vice Chair, Secretary, Vice Secretary and three Judicial Committee members have been picked, all those who accepted these roles as executives may switch places in cooperation with each other from time to time.

14 President and Vice President titles remain for the full term of the assembly but all five of the other executives are subject to perpetual "votes of confidence".

15 Directors may change their votes of confidence for the five executives anything during their terms, or switch places with each other by mutual agreement, and the volunteer web page designed shall make these updates within seven days the votes are known.

14 Votes of confidence for the five executives will take place, once the guidelines are approved by the biggest plurality of voting Directors using the 1Ogle Method, and the general precedents and guidelines of the International Parliament's guidelines will help set precedents.

15 The object of this Party shall be to elect Libertarians to public office.

16 Resignations and death ends the Director's term. In these cases, the next highest-ranked name based on the original stack of paper ballots cast and kept as proof, is always automatically elected.

James Ogle's marked paper ballot #e-aps-18 on 9/2/2019 as follows:

1 Proposed Bylaws and Parliamentary Proceedures of the Libertarian Party of the City of Los Angeles, California (LPCityLA) (9/1/2019)
NOTES: https://usparliament.org/stv.php

2 The name of this Party shall be the Libertarian Party of the City of Los Angeles, California (LPCityLA).

3 The object of this Party shall be to elect Libertarians to public office.

4 The Membership of the Party shall be all members of the Libertarian Party of California who reside in the City Los Angeles California, or who choose to affiliate with the Libertarian Party of California within the City of Los Angeles County.

5 LPCityLA shall always use ranked choice voting (RCV) in the form of ranked paper ballots only (and eballots when practical and verifiable). Consecutive numbers beginning with the #s 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc. must always be used when marking on (e)ballot of all alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

6 For electing names, the single-transferrable vote (STV) is used, like in Cambridge Massachusetts City Council Election statutes.

7 Resignations and death would end the person's term and the next highest-ranked name, based on the original stack of paper ballots cast and kept as proof, is always automatically elected.

8 When the Droop Quota is used, all seats are elected at-large simultaneously within one at-large district.

Droop Quota = (Total Votes/Total Seats + 1) + 1

9 Names of up to 100 city-level-members shall be elected by ballot to serve for one year or until their successors are elected, and their term of office shall begin at the close of the annual meeting at which they are elected.

10 Nominations shall be from the floor. Up to fifty elected names of the 100 may be dues-payers and up to fifty elected names may be non-dues-payers (free member).

11 Elected non-duespayers who may sign as dues-payer later may only serve as free member through the next election.

12 Once up to 100 county-level-members have been elected, they may each cast a ballot for executive officers.

13 For electing the LPCityLA executives for day-to-day decisions, the top-ranked elected name picks the open executive officer seat first, followed by every consecutively-ranked elected name which follows, until all seats are picked.

14 The officers of the Party shall be Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Regional Representatives and three Judicial Committee members.

15 For electing bylaws, planks and decision-items, RCV is used, but STV is not used.

16 All items on the ballot for decision-items which garner 50% (plus one vote) under ranked choice voting (RCV), are items considered approved.

17 In cases where there are two similar decision-items elected with conflicting traits, then the higher-ranked item cancels out the lower-raked item of similar nature.

18 Election of these Guidelines

19 Election of Officers

20 Election of General Voting Membership

21 Annual cycles of Elections and "Votes of Confidence"
