Call for Judgement: May may may may may may

As May is not defined in the glossary, this call for judgement is simply to ascertain the precise conditions under which an election shall take place. A vote of Only cool people vote FOR., i.e. if this CfJ passes, means that 'May' is taken to mean the word 'may', and thus rendering the title of this CfJ a fulfilment of the rule. A vote of What are you, Eastwood? I reckon you're yeller!, i.e. if this CfJ fails, means that 'May' refers to the month of may, in which case elections shall in all probability never take place.

I would like to point out that, as the term 'may' is undefined, legally speaking the justification is probably more likely to be correct. As the term 'may' is physically present in the rule, there is a case to be made that the physical term was what the rule is refering to. However, this CfJ is more to let the people of BlogNomic decide which they prefer, not inflict some shady interpretation of the rules.

Remember: You may kiss you wives with pride tonight. for elections now
Please, don't disappoint me. for no elections at all.
