(Something to set the mood…)

ADAMSVILLE, Primoria – Over the past three hours, we’ve had seven sub-divisions declaring their results, representing around a third of the electorate. The big story so far is that Prince Jake has exceeded expectations and is currently leading the pack. Here is what we have so far:

MYWAY
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 1
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 1
Prince Jake (LIB): 2

DEARNELAND
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 1
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 0
Prince Jake (LIB): 0

PERERRIA
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 0
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 0
Prince Jake (LIB): 1

MATERNIA
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 1
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 0
Prince Jake (LIB): 1

TYTANNIA
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 0
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 1
Prince Jake (LIB): 0

KAPPANIA
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 0
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 0
Prince Jake (LIB): 1

EL GRANDENS
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 0
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 0
Prince Jake (LIB): 1

Currently, Prince Jake is on 6 votes, the Emperor Mother is on 3 votes, and McKenna is on 2. The surprise decision by the ANP to back Prince Jake has given the Liberals an unexpected boost and this could be what they need to get ahead of the Moderate favourite. The province of Primoria is expected to be the next to declare, probably within the next half an hour. It’s also clear that McKenna is performing badly so far.

ADAMSVILLE, Primoria – Primoria declared its results a few minutes ago and, interestingly, they came out exactly the same as Myway:

PRIMORIA
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 1
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 1
Prince Jake (LIB): 2

The current tally is LIB 8, MOD 4, LAB 3. With 15 votes counted, we’re now around half-way through, and Prince Jake has a convincing lead. However, we’re expecting to see strong numbers for Emperor Mother Jayne once the non-territorial votes are counted at midnight which could see her draw level. Yet to declare are Watertopia, Alluria and Midgard, and we’re hoping to have some of those out within the next few hours. For now, however, things will probably start to slow down after the initial rush of declarations over the past four hours.

With two hours left until polls close, things have become very quiet. From our understanding, turnout could be low in the subdivisions which have not yet declared. This is particularly bad news for Emperor Mother Jayne as these regions have historically supported her; Watertopia is a Moderate heartland, and Midgard is populated by a resident of the former colony of Borealia, which also turned out for the Emperor Mother in 2015. Unless there is a major shift in the final two hours, it is increasingly starting to look like we could have an unlikely winner in the form of Prince Jake.

Watertopia has just declared as follows:

WATERTOPIA
Emperor Mother Jayne Belcher (MOD): 1
Sir Paul McKenna (LAB): 0
Prince Jake (LIB): 1

This extra vote for the Moderates keeps them in the game as the non-territorial declaration looms ever closer with less than an hour to go, but the gap between them and the Liberal candidate is simply not closing. The Moderates will need a very good set of closing results to beat the Liberals at this point. Another big story is the huge collapse in Labour’s vote share; they’re still trailing behind on just 3 votes, without many prospects for winning more. At this point, it is almost impossible for McKenna to win, and we can confidently say that Adammia will soon have a different Prime Minister. The results at the time of writing:
LIB 9
MOD 5
LAB 3
