For All The Jural Assemblies – 25 | State Nationals, State Citizens, and State Electors
State Electors, State Nationals, and State Citizens
Okay, let’s try it again:
State Nationals = everyone born within the physical geographical borders of a State. A National has no particular duty to serve the State other than to obey the Public Law (Non-Statutory Law) and keep the peace.
State Citizens = those State Nationals who additionally choose to serve the State Government in some capacity, such as Jurors, Militia Members, elected officials, or hired officers.
State Electors = those State Nationals who own land in the State and meet other requirements such as legal age, etc., to participate in State Elections.
You can be either: (1) a State National or (2) a State Citizen.
Being a State National or a State Citizen does not necessarily mean that you qualify to be a State Elector. You can be part of the State Jural Assembly and serve as a Juror without being a State Elector. You can be elected to a Public Office, such as Sheriff, without being able to vote for yourself.
This is because of the pesky issue of letting non-landowners vote on questions that only affect landowners, and therefore the requirement that State Electors be landowners.
