What is Race for the Vote?
I've been working on this for about a week now and it's finally all cooked up. Race for the Vote is an election simulator where you run for president in a country ready to split apart. Due to recent events and a long history of instability and uneasiness, the country known as the United Republic of Tumultu or Tumultu for short has had many threats to it's existence.

This election year people want change, and they want change now. Do you have what it takes to become the leader?

How does this work/How do I win?
The path to victory is lengthy and challenging, for only the strongest willed can win. You can either run in the primaries for The People's Front or the Independence Party, or be an independent 3rd party and not have to go through the primaries, though not being apart of one the larger parties significantly reduces your chances.

Candidates for the nomination of the 2 parties will be entered into debates, where they will state their stance on political issues to sway people to nominate them. Voters will vote by county, to win a province a majority of counties have to vote for you as the nominee. The person who wins the majority of support (this is a first past the post system) in at least 4/7 provinces will win the nominee for that party. When scheduled on a day (whenever I change the day in real time) a province or more votes as scheduled.

As an independent, you do not participate in any of this. You instead will begin running once the primaries end.

Once the 2 nominees are selected and all independent parties have stated they are running, the main election will begin. It works similar to the primaries, the nominees and if the 3rd parties are popular enough, them as well will debate each other to state their stance on current events and issues to sway voters. Each day of the main election a single province will vote in the same order, whoever wins in 4/7 of the provinces wins the presidency.

To start running, you must post an application in this format. (Note, if you choose independent, you can name your own party, you don't have to put down independent as your party)

is it too late for another candidate in the independence party?

you can still join the two main parties until a nominee is selected and you can always make your own 3rd party

If no one else joins The People's Front party, James will be the nominee.
