Originally Reported in the Vizindolf Post, reproduced with permission:

Today marks the beginning of the election cycle for President in Vizindolf. There are three candidates running. Representing the Mintelev Party, incumbent are President Alexander Titov and his running mate Vice President Miranda Lypinder. The duo is so far receiving an average of 48% of the vote in current polls.

Also running is Vladimir Urituv of the Tikelov Party, the current Minister of Internal Affairs. His running mate is Milo Athrew, the current chief justice in Alamini County. Together, they are have 33% of the vote.

Lastly, but not least is the offering from the Poresolon Party, Councilwoman Maureen Swink and her running mate Councilman Kenneth Toney. Both are currently in the Mignorian Council. They are currently commanding 19% of the vote.

This is the end of the original article, though they asked us to reproduce it in the IWU Sentinel as they are conducting a poll to see who would be most popular amongst other nations in the region.

Poll Taken in Kialga for Vizindolf President

The above graph shows popularity of the candidates. Gold: Vladimir Urituv; Gray-Blue: Alexander Titov; Navy-Blue: Maureen Swink

Ever since the announcement that the Government of Vizindolf would look into the most popular candidate for the President of Vizindolf was announced, the Kialgan Government opened a poll up on the government website. The poll allowed citizens of legal voting age in Kialga to select who they believed should win the presidential election in Vizindolf.
As the first sets of results were counted, it seems that Councilwoman Maureen Swink would be the most popular in Kialga, scoring 40% of the vote in the first two hours. Incumbent President Alexander Titov barely scrapped any votes in the first two hours, only gaining 6% of the popular vote in Kialga. However as the day drug on, Interior Affairs Minister Vladimir Urituv pulled ahead of Councilwoman Swink.

As the poll closed for the day, Interior Affairs Minister Urituv held the lead in Kialga. The final poll results left Incumbent President Titov at the very bottom of the popular vote in Kialga, barely reaching 16% as the polls closed. Councilwoman Swink pulled out with 38% by the end of the days vote. And Minister Urituv finished the day with an amazing 46% popular vote in Kialga.

Kialga's Foreign Ministry has forwarded the results to the government of Vizindolf so that the government can keep track as they wished.

(Krekopia General Newspaper, August 17th, 2013, page 14.)

Vizindolf Presidential Poll complete!
It was something completely new, as the people of Vizindolf not only asked themselves, who should be their new president, but also asked for the opinions of the other people in the IWU.
The poll is now completed, the results clear as stated below:
39% - "It's the choice of the people of Vizindolf, not ours, so don't bother me!" (Philomina C., 23 years old, wrote this on her sheet)
36% - Urituv
19% - Swink
6% - Titov
Currently, the people of Herodas are waiting for their own elections, but these are said to be held after the "Happy Cat War" found a closing end. With this waiting (although the conflict somehow seemed to have ended by itself) the government of Chancellor Zahariadis is in a rather uncomfortable position.
How the people of Vizindolf decide is written in the stars.
