Procedures for voting in the comitia.


To vote, citizens will need to access the Nova Roma cista, at http://votingplace.net/novaromacista From there, a citizen will simply click the button that says: "CLICK HERE TO VOTE".

On the following page, citizens will enter three pieces of identifying information: Citizen ID, Birthday, and Postal Code.

The citizen ID is that used to locate one's entry in the Album Civium. The citizen ID is a five digit number; accordingly, citizens whose ID is less than five digits will need to add zeros before the number, so that the result is five digits. For example, a citizen with ID number 373 will use 00373 to login.

The birthday is a four digit number, in the form MMDD. A citizen whose birthday is, for example, 06 Sep will enter 0906.

The postal code is that on file in the Album Civium. Generally, this should align with the postal codes in use in the citizen's country of residence. It has been copied as it is in the Album Civium, excepting that all letters have been entered in capital letters. Some postal codes show spaces, dashes, and in some cases, periods. See below for additional information to check the postal code on file. In the case of those citizens who have no postal code on file, a five digit number has been used, generated from the citizen's year of birth, preceded by zero. A citizen living in, for example, Ireland, born in 1974, would use 01974 as the postal code.

Once logged into the cista, citizens will be presented with the ballot listing all declared candidates, along with available fields to write-in candidates. Citizens may simply click the boxes next to the candidates for whom they wish to cast their votes, and/or click the necessary box to write-in candidates of their choosing.

After the citizen has made their selections, they will need to simply click the button at the bottom of the page labeled "Submit Your Vote" to finalise their vote.

  • If a citizen does not know their citizen ID, it can be found by searching the Album Civium, at http://www.novaroma.org/civitas/album On searching one's name, and clicking on their entry, the Citizen ID # field, in the middle of the page, shows the appropriate number.
  • To locate one's postal code, a citizen may log into the Album Civium, using the link above. The login area is at the top right of the page. When logged into the Album, a link will appear where the login fields once were, labeled "My Account". Following that link, the succeeding page shows a number of details. On the left, the address on file is listed; the postal code will immediately precede the citizen's country abbreviation.


CANDIDATES

Comitia Centuriata

Voting in this comitia is ended ! !

The comitia centuriata is one of three voting assemblies within Nova Roma. The main function of this assembly is to elect the year's two praetores, two consules and one of the two censores. It is sometimes called to vote during the year on laws, but this function is usually performed in the comitia populi tributa. It is also empowered to try legal cases in which a citizen is subject to permanent removal of citizenship.

The offices, number of openings, and candidates are:

Consul (2)

The consulship is the highest executive magistracy of Nova Roma. The two consules are co-presidents of the republic.

To stand for election as consul, a potential candidate is required to be at least 30 years old as of the effective date of office, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least four years, and must have previously held the position of praetor or Tribune of the Plebs for at least six months, or served as Provincial Governor for at least three years, or held the position of Senator for a year.[1]

Result:

  • Gnaeus Iulius Caesar
  • Gaius Tullius Valerianus Germanicus

Praetor (2)

The praetores are the second highest executive magistrates and vice-presidents of the Nova Roman Republic and are considered as lower colleagues and deputies for the consules. There are two praetores in Nova Roma and their principal duty is to oversee the official fora and to administer the judicial sytem.

The office of the current praetores can be found here.

To stand for election as praetor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 27 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least three years, and must have held one or more of the following positions for at least six months: plebeian tribune, plebeian aedile, curule aedile, quaestor, or Senator.[1]

Result:

  • Gaius Petronius Dexter
  • Statia Cornelia Valeriana Iuliana Aeternia

Censor (2)

Censores are very respected magistrates with the highest auctoritas to safeguard the public morality and honour but third in rank after the consules and praetores, because they do not possess imperium, and have no power to convene either the senate or an assembly of the people. Their principal duty is to maintain the lists of citizens, equestrians and senators.

To stand for election as censor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 30 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least four years, and must have previously held the position of praetor or consul for at least six months, or served as Provincial Governor for at least three years, or held the position of Senator for a year.[1]

Result:

  • Tiberius Galerius Paulinus
  • Aula Tullia Scholastica



Comitia Populi Tributa

Voting in this comitia is ended !

The comitia populi tributa (tribal assembly of the people) or comitia tributa (tribal assembly) is made up of all citizens, grouped into their respective tribes. It is empowered to elect the quaestors and curule aediles, and to enact laws and to try legal cases that do not involve permanent removal of citizenship. The comitia populi tributa is governed by Lex Cornelia de ratione comitiorum populi tributorum (Nova Roma).


Candidates for voting in Comitia Populi Tributa

The offices, number of openings, and candidates are:

Curule Aedile (2)

All aediles are responsible for the organization of the ludi (public games), public religious events and State properties maintenance. Curule aediles specifically are also resonsible for the Aedilician Fund and the Macellum.

To stand for election as aedilis curulis, a potential candidate is required to be at least 25 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least two years, and must have held the position of plebeian aedile, Provincial Governor, quaestor, or a Senator for at least six months.[1]

Result:

Quaestor (8)

There are eight quaestores elected annually to serve as aides and financial administrators to the consules, praetores, and aediles. After eight quaestores have been elected, the newly elected senior magistrates are consulted and asked which of the new quaestores they wish to have assigned to them. The new consules make the final determination of this, publishing an edict assigning quaestores to senior magistrates.

To stand for election as quaestor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 21 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least one year, and must have previously held the position of an apparitor for at least six months of service.[1]

Rogator (2)

The two rogatores are magistrates of Nova Roma. The rogators work closely with the censors to process citizen applications, check eligibility, and ensure that voters have voter codes and are properly assigned to centuries and tribes. Learn more ...


Result:

  • Lucia Decia Flora
  • Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus

Diribitor (4)

The four diribitors (Lat. diribitores) are magistrates of Nova Roma who are responsible for counting votes; when they have cross-checked each other, they turn their tallies over to the custodes. Because of their involvement in elections, diribitors cannot run for any office for which they would be counting the votes. In antiquity the diribitors were typically young men who had just completed their military service. The office of diribitor is a traditional first step toward the cursus honorum. Learn more ...


Result:

Custos (2)

The two custodes take the raw vote tallies compiled by the diribitors and convert them to a tally of tribes and centuries which they then certify to the convening magistrates of elections. The Latin word "custos" means "guard" or "watcher": in antiquity it was typical for very senior people such as senators and consulars to serve as custodes. Because of their involvement in the elections, custodes can not run for any office for which they would be certifying the election results. Learn more ...
