  • Voting Eligibility Rules

    For primary elections, the registered person would have to demonstrate an affiliation with a political party, if that is required by the rules of the party and that election jurisdiction. Otherwise, the following rules would apply.

    In the general election for President of the United States, every citizen would be able to vote anywhere there is a poling place or method  (physical or electronic). As long as the electoral college system is in place, the vote would have to be electronically transmitted when made to the State which is declared as the residence. After the system is changed by constructional change, there would be no need to identify a state when voting for President of the United States. Election would be by popular vote.

    If a person wanted to vote in any Statewide election, they would have to declare and demonstrate (physically or electronically), any time prior to the 10th day prior to an election in that State, that they were residing in that state. 

    If a person wanted to vote in any Senatorial or Congressional District election, they would have to declare and demonstrate (physically or electronically), any time prior to the 10th day prior to an election in that State, that they were residing in that Senatorial or Congressional District. 

    If a person wanted to vote in any other jurisdictional election (County, City, designated or special district), they would have to declare and demonstrate (physically or electronically), any time prior to the 10th day prior to an election in that jurisdiction, that they were residing in that jurisdictional district.
