___ GUIDELINES - RESOLUTION NUMBER 1 - 4/2/2020 - Committee of Jim Doyle and James Ogle

All elected 538-members shall be known as "Electors".
All Electors may cast one digital vote for the set of at-large USA Executives (i.e. "Exces") and the Execs may pick one title from the following list of titles:

US President (i.e. POTUS)
US Vice President (i.e. Vice-POTUS)
Chair
Vice Chair
Deputy Vice Chair
Secretary
Vice Secretary

The one exception to picking more than one title are the two names who pick President and Vice President. US President and US Vice President may each pick a second title and all Exec seats are subject to perpetual "Exec votes of confidence" for the entire term.

Once the final stage of the Electoral College takes place, the names elected as the 538 Electors as registered in every state of the USA, including President and Vice President, all names entred into the data of the federal archives will not change for four years except by impeachment, resignation or death.

All five Execs seats however shall always be subject to vote of confidence by the 538 Electors, between 4/20/2020 and 4/19/2024, and votes updated to website www.pprelectoralcollege.com.

___ STATE AND COUNTY ELECTIONS:

___ SCHEDULES, SUPER-STATES, MINI-STATES AND COUNTY MICRO-STATES

___ States and county subsidiary elections will be conducted in all the states, counties and territories of the US, by being organized into twelve POPULATION BALANCED districts with twelve population subsidiary districts, referred to as the super-states (states and groups of states) and the mini-states (counties and groups of counties). Counties are to be known as county micro-state parliaments except in counties which are already classified as mini-states. No existing state or county boundary lines drawn and recognized by the US Government will be breached by any boundaries drawn up to form the 12 super states, 144 mini states and county micro-state parliaments within the US Parliament's boundaries. All super-states and mini-states will have the same rules and dates as the national parliament until/unless new rules are approved by said elected bodies.

___ Super-state election dates and cycles will fall on the even years between the national US Parliament/US Presidential Election cycles every four years and the maximum number of names elected will be 250 members of super-state parliament (MSPs).

___ Mini-state election dates and cycles will fall on odd numbered years and mini-state parliaments will elect a maximum of 100 elected members of mini-state parliament (MMPs).

___ County Micro-state elections will elect a maximum of 100 names.

___ Elections in Super-states, Mini-states and County Micro-states may begin shortly after 100 appointments are achieved but some elections may be organized more quickly before the 100 self-appointment level.

___ The maximum threshold of Electors for all parties (and independents) is 1/3rd (33.33%), plus one vote, of the entire set of national USA PPR Elector College.

No more than 66.66% (plus two votes) of the US Presidential Electoral College may be elected from the national Green and Libertarian Parties' national conventions.

___ ELECTORAL VOTES Under Article 11 of the US Constitution, "Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom at least one shall not be an Inhabitant of the same state with themselves."

Requirements of US Presidential Electors by the United Coalition as a pure proportional representation (PPR) Electoral College shall be as follows:

The final list of Electors shall be generated in ranked order by the results of the "10th USA Parliament Election of 2020".

The vote counting will be timed so that the nominations of the names who serve as US Presidential Electors in the PPR Electoral College may sign up as Electors beginning 10/1/2018 and ending on 4/20/2020. A sign up as Presidential Elector serves as a #1 vote for the name, but the name must be a US citizen or resident, they must be compliant with the requirements of the US Constitution and their votes as Presidential Elector must follow the principles outlined in the US Constitution.

When there are not enough names who are elected to serve as Presidential Electors for US President and Vice President at the time of the final vote count for electing the ranked list of names in the USA Parliament of which #1 is President and #2 is Vice President, along with the contact information which is to be used for communication and organizing, or when names cannot be contacted by a specific deadline to be determined by the US Constitution, then after names are eliminated on that date, then the next names are elected by marked ballots by the President and Vice President until all the US Presidential Electors are elected, named and in communication.

Names are to be removed from the PPR Electoral College list only when a person dies, moves out of state, is given a judicial nomination or if they request to be removed.

In cases where a name is removed, the next consecutively ranked name will be elected in their stead, until all the seats are filled.

All US Presidential Electors who are properly nominated, who provide contact information and their state of residence leading up to the four-year USA Presidential cycle, will be automatically nominated onto the ballot for the USA Parliament election, in the years of the US Presidential Elections.

Both voice record, eballots and paper ballots may be used for nominating the PPR Electoral College. Paper ballots are required for the election of the PPR Electoral College which is to be held on Earth Day, April 21st, 2020 in Monterey, California, USA, North America, Earth.

The Green Party USA's and the Libertarian Party's national conventions from which presidential and vice presidential candidates are selected, may have a different date, and so the deadlines for votes for the PPR Electoral College will be after those nominating conventions.

___ All seven geographical levels of the First International Parliament
and each consecutively enumerated elected International Parliaments which
follow, shall have the one set of guidelines (also known as "rules")
and that way the First International Parliament and each consecutively
enumerated elected International Parliament which follows shall be
guided by the one international level.

___ In cases where primaries and runoffs are scheduled in all world elections,
there will be custom dates selected for the primary and runoff starting with the
California Super-state Election of 2018, and these precedents set by the California
Super-state Election of 2018 will be a foundation for planning primary and runoff
elections for all world elections with primaries and runoffs.

___ Guidelines for seven geographical levels of the earth shall
be approved by the International Parliament, and then the approved guidelines
of the International Parliament will hereby apply to all elections in
the following geographic levels:
First Geographical Level) International
Second Geographical Level) Twelve Population-balanced Republic of Earth World Provincial Parliaments
Third Geographical Level) National Republic of Earth Parliaments
Fourth Geographical Level) Twelve Population-balanced Republic of Earth Super-state Parliaments
Fifth Geographical Level) Twelve Population-balanced Republic of Earth Mini-state Parliaments

___ EBALLOTS are ballots cast via email and must be emailed to unitedcoalition "at" international-parliament "dot" org, a private email address used by the vote counters, the executive(s) and observers for receiving such eballots. No reply email will be sent to voters who cast eballots other than a verification message, unless the voter indicates that he/she wishes to be self appointed to the site USPaliament.org or www.international-parliament.org, or when a question regarding verification or validation is raised by a volunteer vote counter.

___ General Counting, Balloting and Eballoting Guidelines

___ RANKED VOTING ONLY: 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 alternative decisions or names. Deviation from this guideline will disqualify the ballot, and the ballot will be marked spoiled.

___ THE SAINTE-LAGUE PARLIAMENT SYSTEM, Hagenbach-Bischoff method, under ranked choice voting, for seat allocation in all multi-seat districts:

Divide the election's total number of votes by the number of seats. This is the 1st quota.

Divide this quota into each candidate's votes, and round off to the nearest whole number. That's that candidate's seat allocation.

If, due to rounding, this awards a number of seats different from the desired number of seats, then adjust the quota slightly up or down, till, when paragraph two is carried out, it will award all seats.

___ Any US resident, nominee and/or proxy may observe the counting of the ballots. Volunteer counters will conduct the vote counting.

Voters must only provide their name (as registered), and at least two
methods for contacting the voter, as part of their registration.

When two or more methods of contact aren't provided by the voter, then further explanation will be considered by the International Parliament's Vote Counting Ministry verifiers. Violation of this or any other rule will automatically disqualify a ballot.

___ BALLOTS AND EBALLOTS: All US residents are eligible to vote in US Parliament Elections during the time between on Earth Day.
Such ballots may be retype set or altered to specifically identify their select nominees' correct name and party affiliation. All ballots released to public use by the USA Parliament's elected secretaries shall count as a legitimate ballot and shall be presumed to represent the correct and most current candidate name information.

___ BALLOT: ORDER OF NOMINEES of all names in the parliament elections and subsidiary parliament elections will be determined by the results caused by the voters' ranking of the nominees on the previous election's ballots. This is known as the correct consecutive order of nominee.

___ Ties in order of new nominations for the ballot will be broken through alphabetizing the names.

___ New nominees will be placed on the ballot in the order that they were nominated. New names will fall below the higher ranked elected members and will be grouped within the group of similar party/category. The date of the original nomination may determine the placement in order on the ballot, those participating for the longest time will get the highest ranking in order from top down.

___ If an elected member switches party/categories at any time, then their name will be placed in the new party/category below all other nominees already listed after the name is moved to the new party/category.

___ The final order of the parties/categories on the final prepared ballot will be determined by the nominees' party name/category and the parties/categories will be listed on the ballot in alphabetical order.

___ TIES: Ties will be broken by holding a runoff election only when called by one of the two secretaries. In all other cases, all the names/items in a tie will be included in the results and will be in a new "tied" category, even if the size of the assembly or agenda list must be expanded beyond normal size set forth by these rules.

___ ONLY ONE SINGLE PARLIAMENTARY BALLOT, IS PERMITTED TO BE MARKED BY EACH U.S. RESIDENT: All U.S. residents, and U.S. citizens living abroad, may vote one time and only one time, during each US Parliament (USP) election cycle. In cases where a second ballot (or more) is cast, only the latter of the ballots will be counted, the former will be marked spoiled and regarded disqualified.

___ The USA Parliament will never hold any election in a single winner district where a single winner decision or name is elected.

___ Numbers of MPs or Members of Parliament to be Elected

___ PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT

The top vote-getter shall be elected as President, and the second highest vote-getter Vice President, to four year terms. All other vote-getters are elected as consecutively ranked names as back-ups for President and Vice President.

The majority coalition is empowered to approve / modify a set of rules by which to operate for four years. The majority coalition is a group of elected MPs, and the largest group of voting MPs, becomes the "majority coalition". The second biggest group of MPs who elect a second set of guidelines are the "minority coalition".

___ US SENATE AND STATE CANDIDATES:

The role of the elected President and Vice President of the national USA Parliament is to lead, assist and rank all known US Senate candidates in every state on a ballot. The rankings cast by the President and/or Vice President will be set forth as recommendations for all members of the USA Parliament and Super-state Parliaments.

The elected US Senate candidates may coordinate with the USA Parliament's nationally elected President and Vice President, within each state's at-large elections.

___ The USA Parliament's President and Vice President may improve or change their ranked ballots for one or more of the states' US Senators at any time during their term, thus giving the actual team of U.S. Senate candidates' names, elected or unelected to state offices, a certain dynamic which can change according the President and Vice President's rankings.

___ CATEGORIZATION AND PARTY NAMES The first and most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is the nominee's most recently requested or declared party/category in US Parliament matters. The second most important criterion in determining the nominee's party/category is determined by the nominee's state's records, as written by the member while registering to vote. Appointed members may be categorized with any party/category that they wish, and the party/category of all members is considered to be the true one. Elected members may decide to change or switch their party/categorization at any time by proclamation. Members automatically qualify for the ballot in the next election cycle under the party/category of their choice.

___ First and last names are preferred, however all names nominated will be permitted on the ballot as well as the party/category of the nominee. If party/category is not known, the label "[Info. Not Avail.]" will be used. A nominee's name (and thus identity) may appear on the ballot only once, so fusion voting is not allowed.
All new nominees within each party /category will qualify for the ballot, to be ranked below all other names on the prepared ballot. The order of these names will be determined first based on the rankings of "nomination ballots", and secondly by chronological order of the dates that the nominee's name was received.

___ THE TRIPLE PRIME MINISTER/DUAL SECRETARY SYSTEM will be always used in the USA Parliament. The executive decisions will be made by the five (known as "the five executives"), in a majority rule vote of at least 3/5ths of the three prime ministers and two secretaries. Only three of the five executive members are needed to implement actions by the executive as a whole.

The Sainte-Lague parliament seat distribution system will be the voting system used for election of the three prime ministers and the two secretaries as a three member district (three prime ministers) and as a two member district (two secretaries). The two districts combined are the elected five executives.

All executives and Cabinet Ministers must be live, real people and no avatars or anonymous names may be used by the elected executives other than their real names. Only real names can be used and verification of the member's true name may be requested when such verifications are of interest to the five national executives.

Each of the five executives agree to rank all names nominated by each of the other four executives, thus guaranteeing that each of the five executives elects 1/5th of the 60 cabinet ministers or eleven new nominees. The top sixty names elected as a 2nd minister in each Ministry, the one with a lower ranking than the 1st, shall be elected as a deputy minister, and all nominees ranked below a #120 ranking who are not elected shall be grouped as ministers awaiting higher rankings by executives. Once all sixty full ministries are elected, the executives shall take turns nominating new names to the cabinet, unless the PARLIAMENTARY GO-AHEAD is given, at which time all new nominees automatically receive all other four executives' #1 rankings.

___ MINISTRY DIRECTORS

All voters may elect Directors, resolutions, agenda items, guidelines
and Administrators within the one earth-at-large Ministry district.

Initiating the Ministry
a. While the Ministry is being established and Directors and Administrators are being elected to maintain the Ministry, the Parliament's President and Vice President shall have the authority needed to establish and maintain these election guidelines. Once the three Administrators are elected, then the five-member executive, the two Ministers and three Administrators, are expected to maintain the elections.

The first fifty names who join the Ministry's facebook page and/or who are ranked by correctly registered voters of the International Parliament are automatically elected to the Ministry.

Once the cap of fifty is reached, no more names will be automatically added as elected Directors.

Names who join the facebook page are considered automatically self-nominated and elected Directors and joining/accepting is equivalent to a one-time #1 vote for their own name, after which all future votes must be ranked choice voting (RCV).

Only Ministry Members May Vote on Internal Rules

All rules passed by other ministries, or other external equal or subordinate entities, which seek to affect this Ministry in USA Parliament shall be considered null and void unless approved by the majority of elected Directors within the Ministry itself.

g. An administrative committee of five members is hereby established, consisting of the full and Deputy Minister and three administrators. The three administrators are elected by Directors of the Ministry in an ongoing "vote of confidence" election. The highest ranking administrator shall be the Administrator; the second highest, Deputy Administrator; and the third highest, Associate Administrator. The executive committee of five shall have the authority to conduct business on behalf of the ministry, as authorized to do so within ministry guidelines or resolutions. Anybody may be elected as one of the three administrators, so long as they accept nomination, except for the full and Deputy Minister, who by virtue of their offices will already be holding a seat on the five member executive committee.

Facebook Voting Page and Password
h. This five-member executives shall have a password to a facebook page and when one of the five stands down or is unelected, the password may be changed by the remaining five executives to insure privacy.

Party/Category of Directors
i. Elected Directors may choose any party/category, which is represented by a word beside their name within the Ministry.

As each Ministry elects its first fifty ranked Directors, the political party/free speech word (or Independent, Info. Not Avail., etc.) is picked during ballot preparation by the ballot preparer.

The primarily suggested word choice is made by the nominator/voter, a secondary choice may be picked randomly by the elections clerk.

Since the free speech word/party category is not always the correct word(s), of course the elected Director herself or himself, may pick a word(s) they wish by their own name. They make pick and change that word(s) anytime, in any week of the year.

Vote Counting Ministry Certification
j. The elections last into perpetuity and the voting records and results are to be overseen, announced, maintained and subject to approval and Certification by the International Parliament's Vote Counting Ministry.

___ SLANDERERS and ANTAGONIZERS

___ NO PERSON MAY BE CENSORED, and no limits may be placed on free speech by/of any other person or nominee, including US Parliament's elected members and staff, at any time except when applying guidelines to party/category labels/names and parts of this rule which regulate antagonists.

Party/category's labels/names may not be used in such a way that slanders or libels names of any person or other party/categories or individuals. Those that refuse to comply by continuing to libel others through their choice of party name will be categorized as members of the Censored Party. Elected members using a name or pseudonym rather than their actual name, which libels, slanders or mimics (such as incorrect spellings), shall have their name censored and instead will be known only as Anonymous.

___ Facebook Chat Group Posting Guidelines

The USA Parliament uses facebook web pages and chat groups.

a. The facebook chat groups entitled "USA Parliament Facebook Chat List", "Senators", "Senators/IP 2016 Convention", "IP Execs and Ministers", "Only Ministers IP", "All Party System Co.", "APS Co.'s International Bureau" and all chat groups used for both USA and International Parliament and it's individual "Ministries" business entities, will all be official news outlets for announcements of information about the new USA Parliament are subject to the restrictions on posting under these guidelines.

b. Elected members of the USA Parliament are sometimes added to these chat lists from time to time without prior notification or permission of the elected members. The participating members are not offended when a person chooses to "leave the conversation". No one's standing as an elected member is affected when they are added or whenever they "leave the conversation".

c. Announcements may be posted from time to time by the President and/or Vice President and other members but announcements may be only about the new USA Parliament.

d. Any frivolous, congratulatory, gratuitous comments which are inefficient, "thumbs up" posts, other sticker posts, posts not about the guidelines, the United Coalition, and posts made which are not about the team and team psychology to the designated USA Parliament facebook chat groups are not permitted.

e. "Thumbs up" are particularly prohibited because "thumbs up" is a plurality vote (thumbs up vs thumbs down) and all plurality voting is prohibited. Only ranked choice voting (RCV) is allowed and since RCV provides the "fuel" for our elected team we do not allow "thumbs up".

f. The USA Parliament's President and Vice President or other volunteers may delete the person's facebook name from the facebook chat group, the person who posts violations once, or continually posts, which are in violation of this guideline in chat group to which this guideline applies.

g. The "three strikes" system will be used so there will be two warning deletions before the permanent deletion of the person who may have been in violation of this guideline once it is approved and implemented.

h. Only elected Executives, Members, Directors, Administrators and Cabinet Ministers may vote on the guidelines for the USA Parliament's official facebook chat groups.

i. Appeals by the deleted member may be made through the USA Parliament's Mediation and Conciliation Ministry.

j. Participants may request to be added or removed to different facebook chat groups by contacting the President, Vice President, Prime Ministers, Secretaries or the Vote Counting Ministry of the USA Parliament.

Once voting for MPs begins each registered voter may vote for a maximum of ten names. When more than ten names are correctly ranked in consecutive order on the ballot or eballot then the first ten names are considered recipients of the ranked votes, but not names enumerated number eleven (11) and after number eleven (11), which are affected. Once an automated voting system is in place or there enough volunteers to handle large numbers of marked eballots and ballots, then the limit of eleven rankings will not be required and will not be in effect.
