Rules: Division Lobby

Recommended Posts

A Division is where the House decides on a particular question, be it a motion or a bill. After debate on a bill or motion has concluded, the Speaker will pose the question by means of a new thread being posted in this forum containing the text of the bill or motion. After that, there will be a period of 48 hours during which you can cast your vote by using the voting functions we will add to the thread in question.

You can vote either Aye (in favour) or No (against; "nay" is not acceptable because we speak the Queen's English in Parliament). You can also abstain: in the UK Parliament, this is done by being absent from the division altogether or going through both lobbies at once. There will be five options: Aye, No, Absent, Abstain, and Admin (so we can see the result without voting in it). If you post the wrong vote, that’s tough luck: you can’t change your vote afterwards, you can only walk the other lobby and turn your wrong vote into an abstention.

The results of the Division might not match the raw results of the poll. The A-Team will convert the poll result into an in-character Division result by considering the number of MPs each party has and the size of following of each player's character.
