In addition, please review the following information regarding your participation in the Barony of Twin Moons Polling.

A polling of the current paid members of the Barony of Twin Moons will be conducted on Thursday January 25th 2024 to determine their support of candidates for Baron and Baroness.

The populace should be aware that if the first polling does not show a clear preference of the populace, a second polling may be held immediately following the closing and  tabulation of ballots for the first poll. Members are encouraged to plan to remain onsite to participate should a second poll be necessary.

To participate in all pollings held that day, you must be a Sustaining, Associate, or Family member who is 18 years old or older, and must receive a Southwind or have an SCA membership in a Zip Code belonging to the Barony of Twin Moons.

1. Current paid memberships will be verified on a membership list at the polling site, or you may present an online membership renewal dated after the date the membership list was generated by the Milpitas Registry. The Kingdom Seneschal recommends you bring proof of membership with you to ensure participation in the poll.
2. You must reside in zip codes belonging to the Barony of Twin Moons, and this will be verified on the membership list at the polling site.
3. NOTE: Paid members who play in the Barony of Twin Moons, but do not reside in the zip codes belonging to the Barony, may not cast ballots. However, they are encouraged to make their views on candidates known to the Crown by sending personal letters to the Crown and  Kingdom Seneschal expressing their candidate selections and preferences. The Crown will consider such letters when reviewing the polling results.
4. You must be 18 years old or older & present a picture ID at the polling site that shows
your date of birth or age.


If you DO NOT HAVE a membership address in a zip code assigned to the Barony of Twin Moons, but your membership is current in a zip code in metropolitan Phoenix, you will be
asked to sign a Pledge Form before you can receive a ballot. The Pledge Form shows your agreement with this statement:

I consider myself a member of the populace of the Barony of Barony of Twin Moons, and promise the Crown of Atenveldt that I will not cast a ballot in any Pollings held in the Barony of Sun Dragon or the Barony of Atenveldt for 3 years following the date of this polling.

A list of the members who sign this Pledge Form will be kept by the Kingdom Seneschal office, and by the Seneschals of the three Baronies in the Phoenix metropolitan area. After signing the Pledge Form, you will be given a different color ballot to indicate your preference
for Baron and Baroness.

Master Edward Harrison
