When it comes time to choose
« on: October 09, 2002, 10:23:40 pm »

When it comes time to choose a state, proponents of each of the states still under consideration should assemble documentation to make the case.  They should include all the most relevant facts and figures in clear, concise, preferably standardized format.  They should write out their case in very brief but persuasive style.  Then all the propoganda should be mailed/emailed/otherwise made available to the members for them to see.

Ideal would be one page per state.  Good would be two or three pages.  Beyond that is more than people will read.  An even shorter introduction should urge people to vote, but go wherever the tally indicates.  "The cause is worth it," and all that.

My understanding is that this sort of scenario is what is actually being planned, but Jason or Elizabeth could give more details on the end game plan when it comes to actually choosing the state.

Correct!   :)

Jason, as head of the Research Cmte, would be able to give you the details, but he's in London right now.

But basically what was described is exactly what will happen.  Many state reports already exist, and can be seen here:

Yes, that is exactly what we plan, though the Research Committee hasn't worked out the details yet.  Basically these will be separate from the existing state reports and will be succinct advocacy pieces, one for each state.  Probably 3 pages, single-spaced.  They'll be included with the paper ballots.  Any specific suggestions welcome!
