Elections in Sirocco

Unlike other nations such as St.Charlie, elections in Sirocco do not dictate the leader of the nation. Instead, they dictate who will serve as Siroccan Chancellor for the calendar year.

Nominations are typically open for three weeks following the announcement of an election. This is followed by one week of voting. The final day of voting is generally considered as 'Election Day', as this is the date by which all votes must be in by.
