"Greetings citizens of Willemstan. As this election begins, I would like you to keep a few things in mind. For one, this is the first Willemstan Election in almost a full year. Let's make it a good one."
- Ian Hampton in his General Statement to the Willemstan public, 12/01/20.
The Winter 2020 Election occured this month, and broke the records for total number of candidates and total ballots cast. At first, it was a close race between Charlie Nolan, Joey Badra, Sean Kavanagh, and Malcolm Hollingworth, but the election quickly swung in favor of Sean. Someone also conceded from the election for the first time (although there have been withdraws during nominations before) and many endorsments and propaganda were made. System IV experienced a minor outage, and progress on the WHS Minecraft Project continued. Weekly events occured throughout the entire month, which were mostly Partypack and Battlesiege events.
