Seeing as many people on nation states have multiple nations, and voting is also measured based on regional influence, we have taken those who had the most votes, or time spent in region and allowed them to move on to the final election. Voting for congress positions will be open next week, so all votes must be cast by this Thursday at 3:00 pm. Any votes cast latter will not be counted. Any regional nation may vote, and is encouraged to, as the president will have significant power for his term of 6 weeks. As this is the first election ever voting will last longer than normal. Feel free to send out telegrams and campaign to the region in order to gain support. There will be a debate hosted this Tuesday for all those interested.
