Would Amend law 205
Amend law 205 to state:
Each citizen may cast up to one vote on each proposition. This vote must
take the form of "yes", "no", or "abstain". A "yes" vote has a weight of
one, counting towards passing the proposition. A "no" vote has a weight of
one, counting towards failing a proposition. An abstention carries a
weight of zero, but is counted as a casted vote for the purposes of voting
If no vote is recieved from a citizen in the proper way, and within the required time, he/she loses that vote, and it is therefore not counted in any way.

Amends law 211
Replace the following DIXILAND delimited text of law 211, with the
following SWING delimited text.
To be eligible for the position of Judge, you may not be the citizen invoking the judgment, nor anyone directly named in the request for judgment. In cases where everyone is named in the request for judgment, the Minister of Records presides as Judge. If, within one week of a judgment, anyone feels that the judgment was unfair or unjust, they may invoke an appeal judgment. In an appeal judgment, the new Judge (who must satisfy previous eligibility requirements, as well as not be the previous Judge (Unless no one else remains, in which it defaults to the Minister of Records) either rules support for the previous Judge's actions, or dismisses his actions. In the event of dismissal, the case is put up to trial again with a third Judge (If anyone remains, else the Minister of Records). However, a case may only be appealed once. (Thus a case up for retrial may not be appealed.)
Judge's are selected randomly out of the citizens who satisfy the following requirements:
(1) The Judge may not be the plaintiff (defined to be the citizen who filed the request for judgment).
(2) The Judge may not be the defendant (defined to be a single, specific citizen, who the request for judgment is against).
(3) In the event of an appeals trial, you may have never been Judge on this case before.
In the event that no one remains eligible for the position of Judge, the requirement with the highest ordinal number will be removed, and again a Judge will be selected. This process of removing the highest numbered requirement may be recursively completed as many times as necessary in order to have an eligible Judge. Note that up to one, and no more than one defendant may be named on any single request for judgment. This implies that if you want to file a request for judgment against multiple citizens, you must do so via multiple requests for judgment.
On any case, an appeal, and only one appeal may be filed. No case may be re-tried outside of the appeals process. If, after a verdict is made on the original case, any citizen is unsatisfied with the verdict, an appeal may be filed via a request for judgment. In the event of an appeal, a second Judge, who must satisfy the previous eligibility requirements, has two choices: (1) rule in favour of the original verdict, in which case the original verdict stands as final, or (2) rule in opposition and make an alternate verdict. In this case, a third Judge, who satisfies the previous eligibility requirements, will rule the final verdict to be one of the two previous Judge's verdicts. The third Judge may not make a verdict outside of choosing one of the previous Judge's verdicts. Whichever verdict the third Judge chooses, is the final verdict, and may not be appealed.
