Methods & Logistics for
Conducting The Conclave
Wherefore the Lord sent among the people fiery serpents, which bit them and
killed many of them.
9 Moses therefore made a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: which when
they that were bitten looked upon, they were healed.
And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the
sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days:
in the day when the Lord shall bind up the wound of his people, and shall heal
the stroke of their wound.

The failed Vicar, Book of Isaias, with Fallen Trade
Since valid Electors come from many parts of the globe, it
is necessary for "The Conclave" committee to provide for methods of a conducting
the balloting that are fair, secure and practical. While it would be preferable
to hold a conclave in one central place with all the participants present
physically, the reality for many Electors is that this is simply not feasible
today. Accordingly, this page presents the methods which will be used to
proceed with a Conclave Central to elect the Vicar of Christ.
The Election will be conducted in the English language.
English is the most recognized language in the world and some even consider it
the second language (after Latin) of the Catholic Church today. Most all of the
Electors that we know of today speak English and so it is right and valid for
the use of English. Should any Elector not speak English, he or she is
authorized to use a trusted translator of his or her choice.
Place of Conclave
"The Conclave" organizing committee will meet in person in
one central location in order to conduct the conclave, to ensure the validity of
the process, the authenticity of each vote, and to check and cross-check and
confirm the votes. Such a site will be announced well prior to The Conclave so
that the organizing committee will have sufficient time to arrange travel.
This is because the balloting will be done primarily via electronic means
(computer) and require cross-checking by each of the committee members.
Security - Elector's Voting Codes
Each Elector will be sent, well prior to the conclave, a
sealed envelope containing the voting codes. Each Elector will have a different
set of codes, and each code is different for each ballot. If an Elector submits
a ballot without the correct voting code for that ballot, the vote is not
accepted. This security is intended to prevent fraudulent voting by
un-authorized persons. The Elector Codes will be sent via surface mail or
distributed via a Local Coordinator to prevent fraudulent interception. Each
Elector MUST notify the Conclave Committee on receipt of the Voting Codes as
soon as they are received. In addition, each elector must secure his/her own
Voting Codes until the Conclave. Even members of the Elector's own family may
NOT have access to the Elector's Voting Codes. If the Elector at any time
thinks that his/her Voting Codes have been compromised, that Elector is to
notify the organizing committee as soon as possible, and new codes will be
issued. For more details, see the
Logistics for Each Ballot
Each ballot must include:
- The Ballot Number
- The Voting Code for that Elector for that Ballot
- The name of the person for whom the Elector is voting.
- The return information of the Elector, such as Phone number, or
EMAIL Address, or Skype Name, Number.
The email address of "The Conclave" will be provided on the
DATA sheet to Electors prior to the TEST and REAL vote. This EMAIL address is
NOT to be used prior to the Conclave, except for testing on the part of each
Elector using EMAIL, to confirm that each Elector has the correct EMAIL address
and that the EMAIL is received by the Conclave Committee.
As a BACKUP procedure in the event of a computer failure or an ISP
failure at either the Elector Location or at Conclave Central, an Elector who
would normally use EMAIL would revert to VOICE or FAX votes, and thus should be
prepared for both.
The text form for EMAIL voting to be used on each ballot is
on the page entitled,
"EMAIL Conclave Vote."
PHONE VOICE; The phone
number(s), primary and backup, for VOICE voting will be available on the DATA
sheet, and will be provided to Electors prior to the TEST and REAL vote.
During a PHONE VOICE vote, there shall be no idle chatter nor discussion of the
Ballot in progress. The VOICE vote shall be quick and to the point, and
shall be directed by the Conclave committee so as not to tie up the phone line.
During the REAL vote, a VOICE vote must be "said" 3 times, once to
each of the Conclave Committee Members to ensure correct hearing and
The Conclave Committee will announce the start of the Conclave voting to the
exact date and time 1 month prior. All times will be given in GMT (Greenwich
Mean Time) to allow for a global set of electors. Therefore, if an Elector is
not familiar with GMT, he/she MUST become familiar with this international time
well before the start of the Conclave. The Conclave Committee will also give
the times in the USA in Eastern Time, and in Australia in ?? time.

As this Conclave process is entirely new to all of us, and since we
are working in a global environment, we can only give a best guess as to
how long it will take to run a ballot, verify authenticity, tally the results,
cross-check the results, inform the Electors of the results of each ballot,
inform a person who has received the necessary 2/3 vote, and schedule the
next ballot. We ask your patience and understanding if the process
is delayed for any unforeseen cirumstances. We are working in an
electronic environment and we all know that electronic things such as computers,
faxes and telephone lines can and do break. We should start now in
praying to the Holy Ghost and to our patron, Pope St. Pius V, to assist
in keeping things running smoothly.
We will keep the Electors informed to the best of our ability with the
Holy Ghost guiding our every move.
