The Clark and General Elections

The votes on all proposed legislation, as taken in the Ziu, are recorded in a legislative journal called The Clark, which, as required by law, is published by the Secretary of State each month that the Ziu is in session. All of the Clarks since the 6th Cosa are available in the Digest of Laws, and a calendar of all Clarks and General Elections can be found here
