The First Annual Community-run Hopscotch Election

Welcome to the First Annual Hopscotch Election!

Here’s how this is going to work. There are 5 parties. Each party has 5 candidates that are running for hopscotch president. The first thing that you will do is decide what party you are. Here is a list of the parties and what candidates are running from each one:

The Characters

  • Bear
  • Robo
  • Cosmic Cody
  • Star Girl
  • Octopus

The Jungle

  • Parrot
  • Toucan
  • Sloth
  • Banyan
  • Hut

The Winter

  • Penguin
  • Polar Bear
  • Elf
  • Queen Anna
  • Reindeer

The Halloween

  • Pumpkin
  • Zombear
  • Ghoulopus
  • Bats
  • Lantern

The Shapes
This party was added later than the others, so all of the shapes are running. If you are in this party, you all have to agree on a candidate.

Once you have decided your party, you will be tagged to that parties topic. There you will take part in the primary elections. This is when you will decide (as a party) who your candidate will be. Once every party has picked their candidate, the next stage will begin. Each person will have a week to create a project that features your candidate giving a speech on why they should be elected as president, or an advertisement for them. And here’s the twist! Every project like that will count as 1 extra vote for that candidate! There is a maximum of 1 project per person, however.

Once that week is over, the next stage will start. This is the elimination stage. A poll will be created will all 5 of the candidates names in it. Everyone will vote for who their favorite of the candidates is. The two candidates with the least amount of votes are eliminated! You will have four days to cast your vote. At the end of this four day session, the results will be announced. After this stage, comes the next elimination stage, where you also will have four days to cast your vote.

After those two elimination stages, we will be left with two candidates. This is when we will hold the final elections. You will have 8 days to create a project advertising for your favorite of the last two candidates, which will count as an extra vote for them (max of one project per person), as well as casting your vote. On September 1st, the final results will be announced. The winner will then be the president of Hopscotch, until next year.

I don’t really care if the four other topics for the parties are unlisted. I was just wondering if they should be, to avoid clogging up the forum?

4 Likes

Probably yea since there are 4 different topics

6 Likes

Ok. Ima go make them. Shall I tag you to them to unlist them?

4 Likes

Yep. Tag me when you post them and I’ll unlist

Also don’t tag the leaders, I’m gonna grab the links to the topics and tag them in a post so they don’t have 4 different tags
