  • Kingdom mandates polling about the Barons at least every five years. The process, which is driven by the Kingdom, will begin sometime in October. At that time, any paid member or couple interested in serving may submit their name for consideration as the next Baron/ess of Cleftlands. Calum and Constanza are requesting of their Majesties that they step down at NOWM next year.
  • After candidates are nominated, polling will begin. Any paid member living in the Barony will be sent a poll, and paid members outside the Barony but participating here may request polls of Kingdom. When polling is complete, their Majesties will consider the poll as they appoint the next Baron/ess.
