Chair before election

Jack Dean

Elected Chair

Anthony Clark

The next Grand Unified Micronational election to elect the chair and vice-chair began on 17 June 2021 and ended on 23 June. The new chair and vice-chair took office on 1 July. Campaigning began on 27 May.

The election was the first one held under the new charter, which was enacted on 21 March 2021.

The then-current chair was Jack Dean. Brooklyn Hewitt was vice-chair until her resignation on 13 June 2021.[1]

Procedure

As the supreme justice was a candidate in the election, the election was administered by Newton von Uberquie, the most senior associate justice. It was the first election to use a joint ticket procedure to elect both the chair and vice-chair; before, the vice-chair was nominated by the newly elected chair and then confirmed by Quorum. There was also a campaign ban: no one was allowed to campaign until three weeks before the election takes place.

The voting system was also different. Before, elections for chair used a first-past-the-post system. This election was be the first to use instant-runoff voting.

Candidates

Brooklyn Hewitt, the President of New Virginia, announced her candidacy on 13 May. But on 13 June, she resigned from her office as vice-chair and dropped out of the race. Her running mate, Anthony Clark, took over the campaign, naming Austin Jaax as his running mate.
