Anyone wishing to serve in any of these positions must have been a citizen for at least six months by Kal. Apr. MMDCCLXII (May 1st, 2009) and be an assiduus (tax-paying) citizen. I will convene the comitia for the elections at the end of April, but candidates are welcome to announce themselves and begin campaigning if they wish.
All potential candidates must contact me with their intention to stand for office directly by sending a message to M.Curiatius.Complutensis at NovaRoma dot org in order to be placed on the ballot. Please include the word "candidate" in the subject of the message, and be sure to tell me your full Nova Roman name. Simply announcing your candidacy to one of the lists shall not be accepted. You must write to me directly.
Candidacies will be accepted until 12 May 2009 (07.00 hrs CET Rome). The contio is tentatively scheduled to begin on 12 May, with the elections to follow tentatively beginning on 20 May.

Voting Procedure in Nova Roma
Voting in Nova Roma follows the procedures outlined here.
The Contio will begin at 21:00 hours, Roma time (Central European Time), on 12 May and will last until 23.59 hours, Roma time, on 20 May. During the Contio the diribitores need to select and announce the Centuria Praerogativa.
The Centuria Praerogativa is centuria XIV. Note that centuries will be realigned shortly before the election. This is done in order to capture recent taxpayers into the correct centuries.
The Comitia Centuriata election will follow this schedule:
- 07:00 hrs CET 25 May: Voting by the Centuria Praerogativa alone begins.
- 07:00 hrs CET 27 May: Diribitores capture tally of Centuria Praerogativa.
- 07:00 hrs CET 27 May: Voting by all First Class centuries now permitted.
- 07:00 hrs CET 30 May: Diribitores capture tally of all First Class centuries.
- 07:00 hrs CET 30 May: Voting by all centuries now permitted.
- 17:00 hrs CET 3 June: All voting ends.
The diribitores shall provide reports of the progress of the voting in accordance with the provisions of the LEX FABIA DE RATIONE COMITIORUM CENTURIATORUM.
The offices, number of openings, candidates and rogationes are:
Censor Suffectus (1)
are very respected magistrates with the highest auctoritas
to safeguard the public morality and honour but third in rank
after the consules
, 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 30 years old, 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 consul for at least six months, or served as Provincial Governor for at least three years, or held the position of Senator for a year.
