___ 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.

___ 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).

___ 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 "Ogle Method" or "Count the Tics".

___ The object of this Mini-state shall be to elect candidates to public office.

___ All paper ballots are brought in one stack to the annual convention, and the one total stack of paper ballots will be replicated and distributed before the approval of totals results.

___ In California during 2020 and through July 4th 2021 with 26,060,000 eligible voters, there will be a cap at 501 names elected as "Electors" to the California Super-state as the Electors/Directors, they may affiliate with any county as long as the State total doesn't surpass the State cap of 501.

___ Up to 501 consecutively ranked names will be announced based on the vote count and all names ranked below #501 will not have a vote unless elected as a results of an existing name who dies or resigns at which time the next highest name is automatically elected.

___ The number of Electors or Directors elected to ss-11-9 is to be calculated and is always effective immediately, to where each of California's Elector seats as defined by the US Constitution were based on the 50,000 (50K) cap on voters within each current Congressional District, the cap applied as though George Washington's Article the First had been approved. Two seats as "Senator Elector" seats will be elected under the cap of 501.

___ The Elections of Electors/Directors will be perpetual through the conclusion of the one-year term of the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County.

___ All Electors/Directors may communicate with each other based on the contact information by their name on the party-list paper ballot.

___ All elected executives will be subject to perpetual votes of confidence.

___ For electing the LPCityLA/ss11-9 executives for day-to-day decisions, first the votes are tallied and then 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.

___ The Mini-state ss11-9 shall have the same number of executives as LA City Council.

___ Officers and Duties. The officers of the Party shall be a Chair, a Vice-Chair, a Secretary, a Treasurer, three Judicial Committee members and Regional Representatives who pick titles from each Region.

___ Elections, Term of Office. The officers 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. Nominations shall be from the floor.

___ The date of the annual meeting shall be determined by votes on rules.

___ The Los Angeles County Mini-state election of rules starts with the two votes cast before all others, the two votes cast by the two top-ranked names of the elected Directors/Electors, top-ranked being "President" and 2nd-ranked being "Vice President".

___ On September 28th 2020 Jeff Drobman voted to defer his vote on rules/guidelines as President and now on September 28th 2020 Mark Herd might vote for rules/guidelines as 2nd-ranked name (Vice President).
