The following Provincial Officer positions are up for election: Seneschal, Herald, Minister of Lists (MOL – currently vacant), Webminister, Historian, Fencing Marshal, and Minister of Arts & Sciences (MOAS). Each officer is elected for a two year term. This time, MOL and MOAS are only one year, as these are to fill out the remainder of the current terms.
Letters of Intent should be sent to the Viceroy and Vicereine, and myself, by October 31st. We would then post these to the officer Gmail list and ask the candidates to speak to the officers and populace at the Provincial Commons in November, with the elections in December. The details of the election process are in the Provincial bylaws. Below are some brief descriptions of the offices that Her Excellency has prepared. If you have any questions about these positions, please speak with the current officer, their Excellencies, or me.

Herald: The office of the herald is two parts: 1. voice herald responsible for running Provincial Court and filing reports after each court, and 2. helping members of the populace submit names and heraldic devices. You do not have to be able to do both and can have a deputy to help with one or the other. Current office holder Bóaire Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin.
