Plebicites and voting in Comitia Plebis Tributa

L. Livia Plauta tribuna plebis omnibus quiritibus S.P.D.

I hereby announce that I will convene the Comitia Plebis Tributa two times.

The first time in order to repeal two laws that affect respectively the requirements for becoming Aedilis Plebis and the modalities for electing plebeian magistrates (see separate announcement).

The second time for the annual elections of Tribuni Plebis and Aediles Plebis.

The first contio period starts today, Monday, November 3, at 7:00 Rome time (approximately 6 hours after this posting) and ends on Saturday, November 8 at 17:00 Rome time.

Voting on repealing the two laws starts on Sunday, November 9 at 7:00 Rome time and ends on Saturday, November 15 at 17:00 Rome time. I will have to ask citizens not to vote on Thursday, November 13 and Friday, November 14, because those days are not dies comitiales.

At the same time, at 7:00 roman time on November 9, the contio will start for the elections of Tribuni and Aediles Plebis. This contio will end at 17:00 Rome time on November 15.

Voting for the election of tribuni Plebis and Aediles Plebis will begin on Sunday, November 16 at 7:00 Rome time and end on Sunday, November 23 at 17:00 Rome time.

Comitia Centuriata

Rogationes


The offices, number of openings, and candidates are:

Censor (1)

Censores are very respected magistrates with the highest auctoritas to safeguard the public morality and honour but third in rank after the consules and praetores, because they do not possess imperium, and have no power to convene either the senate or an assembly of the people. Their principal duty is to maintain the lists of citizens, equestrians and senators.

To stand for election as censor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 27 years old as of the effective date of office and must be assiduus.

Result:

Consul (2)

The consulship is the highest executive magistracy of Nova Roma. The two consules are co-presidents of the republic.

To stand for election as consul, a potential candidate is required to be at least 30 years old as of the effective date of office, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least four years, and must have previously held the position of praetor or Tribune of the Plebs for at least six months, or served as Provincial Governor for at least three years, or held the position of Senator for a year.[1]

Result:

Praetor (2)

The praetores are the second highest executive magistrates and vice-presidents of the Nova Roman Republic and are considered as lower colleagues and deputies for the consules. There are two praetores in Nova Roma and their principal duty is to oversee the official fora and to administer the judicial sytem.

The office of the current praetores can be found here.

To stand for election as praetor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 27 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least three years, and must have held one or more of the following positions for at least six months: plebeian tribune, plebeian aedile, curule aedile, quaestor, or Senator.[1]

Rogationes


The offices, number of openings, and candidates are:

Curule Aedile (2)

All aediles are responsible for the organization of the ludi (public games), public religious events and State properties maintenance. Curule aediles specifically are also resonsible for the Aedilician Fund and the Macellum.

To stand for election as aedilis curulis, a potential candidate is required to be at least 25 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least two years, and must have held the position of plebeian aedile, Provincial Governor, quaestor, or a Senator for at least six months.[1]

Result:

Quaestor (8)

There are eight quaestores elected annually to serve as aides and financial administrators to the consules, praetores, and aediles. After eight quaestores have been elected, the newly elected senior magistrates are consulted and asked which of the new quaestores they wish to have assigned to them. The new consules make the final determination of this, publishing an edict assigning quaestores to senior magistrates.

To stand for election as quaestor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 21 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least one year, and must have previously held the position of an apparitor for at least six months of service.[1]

Rogator (2)

The two rogatores are magistrates of Nova Roma. The rogators work closely with the censors to process citizen applications, check eligibility, and ensure that voters have voter codes and are properly assigned to centuries and tribes. Learn more ...


Result:

Diribitor (4)

The four diribitors (Lat. diribitores) are magistrates of Nova Roma who are responsible for counting votes; when they have cross-checked each other, they turn their tallies over to the custodes. Because of their involvement in elections, diribitors cannot run for any office for which they would be counting the votes. In antiquity the diribitors were typically young men who had just completed their military service. The office of diribitor is a traditional first step toward the cursus honorum. Learn more ...


Result:

Custos (2)

The two custodes take the raw vote tallies compiled by the diribitors and convert them to a tally of tribes and centuries which they then certify to the convening magistrates of elections. The Latin word "custos" means "guard" or "watcher": in antiquity it was typical for very senior people such as senators and consulars to serve as custodes. Because of their involvement in the elections, custodes can not run for any office for which they would be certifying the election results. Learn more ...
