November is a historic day for Essenians because they will get their chance to vote for the next Chancellor. This is historic because the first Chancellor of Essena William Calaway was voted on by the National Convention when Essena was transitioning from US rule to independence. William Calaway will not be part of the ballot because of a promise he made during his inauguration speech, where he said "Since I am not directly elected by the people when my term is done I will not run for reelection and I will let the people decide who they want in office. As the Essena motto goes Strength and Prosperity By The People
!" On the upcoming election Calaway has given his advice to those running for the office by saying "Be patient and kind but strong and competent. You are the voice of the people, they are your boss." The candidates running for office are listed below.
