    When can we expect this update?

  9. anthony_270admin January 18, 2017 at 1:51 pm #

    @Andres,

    It depends on whether I decide to include PR and two-round voting (for the French Presidential election) or not. If not, it could be a few days until a sneak peek, if so, it might be a few weeks.

    Will this update also include the Libertarians on all ballots as I mentioned earlier?

    @SirLagsalott,

    Not planning to change Lib starting ballot access in this version. I believe it’s on the to-do.

    I know for the 1972 election scenario, there is a bug on election night where results stop coming in at 11:59pm. This bug ends up not showing the results for Alaska.

    @EAY,

    Thanks for this – it’s on the to-do list.

    @anthony

    When I press v to try and access the pop vote mode, it does nothing. I do have the updated version.

  16. Chad April 10, 2017 at 7:40 pm #

    Edit: I have nothing in the update. No 2004 campaign, no pop vote option in the editor either.

  17. Parker zip April 10, 2017 at 8:21 pm #

    I thought you said there would be an imcumbency feature?

  18. Isaiah April 14, 2017 at 10:20 pm #

    @Chad Are You Sure? I see the 2004 campaign and the pop vote option.

  19. Milo April 23, 2017 at 11:41 am #

    2004 Chafee needs a bit of boast to like 10-20%,to make it vaguely competitive as there would be some Rockfeller and some Libertarian GOP politicians like Ron Paul who were against the war in Iraq. There should be debates as well and earlier start if possible
