Inauguration of Daniel Stefanko
|2012 Hamlinian Presidential Inauguration|
|Date||August 1, 2012|
|Site||Hamlinia, Hamlinian Republic|
The Inauguration of Daniel Stefanko was supposed to be the first formal presidential inauguration in the history of the Hamlinian Republic, but was cut down to a private swearing-in ceremony due to budget cuts.
The 2012 Hamlinian Presidential Election is an election that took place in the Hamlinian Republic to elect a new President of the Hamlinian Republic. The election took place on July 12, 2012, while the MicroWiki voting took place on June 2, 2012.The election cycle started noticeably earlier than the 2011 Elections, and saw a more widespread field of candidates. The cycle began with
On June 2, 2012, MicroWiki community members took to the ballot box and voted in the election. Nik Hart came out as the decisive victor, getting 6 votes to Daniel Stefanko's 1 vote. Since each vote only held half weight, Hart ended the night with 3 votes compared to Stefanko's 1. On June 27, the Hamlinian Senate passed a bill put forward by Stefanko that would move the election up to two weeks after the motion carried. The motion was approved and carried by Speaker Hamlin on June 28, making the election on July 12, 2012. This will also move the inauguration up to late July, thus cutting Hamlin's second and final term short, although Hamlin gave no signs of dismay, as he co-sponsored and failed to veto the bill.
On July 12, 2012, voters took to the polls. The first three states to have their results revealed were Stefankostan, Sonoristan and Hamlinistan respectively. Stefanko took Stefankostan and Hart took Hamlinistan and Sonoristan. The two state wins would be the end of Hart's winning streak as Stefanko would go on to take Hamlinia, which tied the candidates at 6 each. The Oasis Islands served as the tie breaker, which Stefanko won three votes to one vote. Stefanko was declared President-Elect at 1:24pm Eastern Daylight Time, with authenticated results yet to come out.
