Subject: Icemule Town Council Election Results

It is with a heavy heart and not the usual spirit of jubilation that I must post this missive announcing the Icemule Trace Town Council election results. Clovertooth Hall has been damaged--thankfully, not critically--by this evening's freak fire, and we must entertain the possibility that this damage was caused by arson. Although I had hoped to post both mayoral and Town Council results, the tallies of the former race are now in doubt due to the fire damage and chaos.

Even so, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome five new members to the Icemule Town Council:

Arianiss
Dayzed
Jastalyn
Kittai
Kobane

I want to offer a personal thanks to all who put their name into the race, and would encourage you to remain civic-minded even if you did not win. You all did a wonderful job of making your cases, and this was an intensely close race, with a mere handful of votes separating most of the candidates.

Election Details

Voting for the Icemule Mayoral and Town Council Race has ended! Voting began on Friday June 26 at 2:37am ET and ended just after Midnight ET on Sunday June 28, 5120. Voting Booths were located in Icemule Trace in the meeting pavilion just outside Clovertooth Hall, allowing one character per account to VOTE, and available 24/7 to allow players the chance to log in and cast their vote.

To vote in this election, a character had to either be an Icemule Trace citizen, or be able to back a longstanding association with the town, one example being long-time members of the community who were shackled to shops elsewhere and thus ineligible for citizenship in Icemule Trace. Details were given as to how an eligible non-citizen could register to vote. To prevent abuse of the voting system, free-to-play accounts were barred from voting.

Five candidates were announced election winners for town council on the evening of 6/29/5120, and they were: Arianiss, Dayzed, Jastalyn, Kittai, and Kobane.

A mayor should have been named at the same time. However, according to an official announcement by Election Coordinator Reiphe O'Mallory, a mayor could not yet be named because Clovertooth Hall caught fire. The ensuing chaos and fire damage has cast doubt upon the mayoral vote tallies.

The candidates for Mayor are Talliver Dabbings, Ellerel Barrowfoot, Hazelnut Honeybrook, and Walesca Wineberry.
