SENATUS CONSULTUM ON ELECTORAL PROCESS TO BE USED IN THE COMITIA CENTURIATA (Failed)

1. The CFO shall open a special tax payment period. During this period, all citizens who were registered with the censores prior to July 1, 2015, shall be allowed to pay their calendar year 2018 taxes without late fees or penalties to enter assiduus status immediately and remain in assiduus status for the remainder of the calendar year 2018. The period for making these payments shall be at least 30 days.


2. The CFO shall produce a list of all assidui citizens, sorted by census points, nomen, cognomen (including agnomen, if any), and praenomen, at the close of this special tax period and also post the list on the Nova Roma Main List. The CIO shall post this list of all assidui citizens in the Nova Roma Wiki. Elections shall not begin until at least 14 days following the posting of this list of taxpayers to allow citizens time to review the list and report any errors or omissions.


3. The CFO and CIO shall assign citizens to tribes for the comitia plebis tributa and comitia populi tributa in accordance with applicable Nova Roma leges.


4. The CFO and CIO shall assign tax paying citizens to Classes 1 through 5 for the comitia centuriata using the sorted list of all assidui published by the CFO. If the total number of assidui is not evenly divisible by five, the CFO and CIO shall place one, two, three, or four less citizens in Class 1, as needed, to ensure Classes 2, 3, 4, and 5 have equal numbers of citizens. The CFO and CIO shall assign all equites to Century 1. The CFO and CIO shall then spread the assignment of all remaining taxpayers to Classes 1 through 5, so they are spread equally across the five classes, except as needed to accommodate a total number of assidui citizens not evenly divisible by five. The CFO and CIO shall also ensure assidui citizens, except equites, are assigned to classes in descending census point rank so those assidui citizens who have earned the highest number of census points are in Class 1 and those with the lowest census points are in Class 5.


5. The citizens in the list of assidui assigned to Class 1 will be assigned to centuries in such a way that there will be three citizens per century and the citizens with the highest census points will be in Century 2. Citizens assigned to Class 1 will be assigned in decreasing order of census points to higher numbered centuries until all citizens assigned to Class 1 have been assigned a century in Class 1. As stated in paragraph 4, above, all equites will be in Century 1 and they will be the only citizens in Century 1. In the event the total remaining number of citizens assigned to Class 1 is not evenly divisible by three, Centuries 2 and 3 may be adjusted to hold two or three citizens, with two citizens assigned to the lowest numbered centuries, to allow the citizens with the highest census points to have a more favorable voting position.


6. The citizens in the list of assidui assigned to Class 2 will be assigned to centuries in such a way that there will be four citizens per century and the citizens with the highest census points will be in the first century following the end of Class 1. Citizens assigned to Class 2 will be assigned in decreasing order of census points to higher numbered centuries until all citizens assigned to Class 2 have been assigned a century in Class 2. In the event the total number of citizens assigned to Class 2 is not evenly divisible by four, the first three centuries in Class 2 may be adjusted to hold three or four citizens, with three citizens assigned to the lowest numbered centuries, to allow the citizens with the highest census points to have a more favorable voting position.


7. The citizens in the list of assidui assigned to Class 3 will be assigned to centuries in such a way that there will be five citizens per century and the citizens with the highest census points will be in the first century following the end of Class 2. Citizens assigned to Class 3 will be assigned in decreasing order of census points to higher numbered centuries until all citizens assigned to Class 3 have been assigned a century in Class 3. In the event the total number of citizens assigned to Class 3 is not evenly divisible by five, the first four centuries in Class 3 may be adjusted to hold four or five citizens, with four citizens assigned to the lowest numbered centuries, to allow the citizens with the highest census points to have a more favorable voting position.


8. The citizens in the list of assidui assigned to Class 4 will be assigned to centuries in such a way that there will be six citizens per century and the citizens with the highest census points will be in the first century following the end of Class 3. Citizens assigned to Class 4 will be assigned in decreasing order of census points to higher numbered centuries until all citizens assigned to Class 4 have been assigned a century in Class 4. In the event the total number of citizens assigned to Class 4 is not evenly divisible by six, the first five centuries in Class 4 may be adjusted to hold five or six citizens, with five citizens assigned to the lowest numbered centuries, to allow the citizens with the highest census points to have a more favorable voting position.


9. The citizens in the list of assidui assigned to Class 5 will be assigned to centuries in such a way that there will be seven citizens per century and the citizens with the highest census points will be in the first century following the end of Class 4. Citizens assigned to Class 5 will be assigned in decreasing order of census points to higher numbered centuries until all citizens assigned to Class 5 have been assigned a century in Class 5. In the event the total number of citizens assigned to Class 5 is not evenly divisible by seven, the first six centuries in Class 5 may be adjusted to hold six or seven citizens, with six citizens assigned to the lowest numbered centuries, to allow the citizens with the highest census points to have a more favorable voting position.


10. The citizens whose names do not appear in the list of assidui produced by the CFO at paragraph two, above, shall be assigned by the CFO and CIO to a single century with the number immediately following the last century in Class 5.


11. The CIO shall publish the final, full list of citizens with their Class, Century, and Tribe assignments on the Wiki. Elections shall not begin until at least 10 days following the posting of the Class and Century assignments on the Wiki.


12. The Nova Roma Senate shall determine the time and date of the elections in accordance with applicable Nova Roma leges; however, the first day of contio for election in the comitia centuriata must be within 90 days of the adoption of these provisions by the Senate. The first day of contio for the comitia plebis tributa and comitia populi tributa shall also be within 90 days of the adoption of these provision by the Senate; however, the timing of the elections in these comitia need not coincide with the comitia centuriata - the elections in these comitia may have differing schedules. The Nova Roma Senate shall determine who, from among the members of the Senate, shall serve as election officials. Additionally, the Nova Roma Senate shall not make any adjustments or changes to the assignment of citizens to centuries or tribes as published in the Nova Roma Wiki (see paragraph 11, above).
