The Northern Regional Seneschal has put together a list of FAQ's that may

Q: Why do we want to pursue Principality at this time?
A: There has been a grassroots movement to move the Northern Region to a
Principality. This has been discussed for many, many years and many,
many times. This polling is to gauge interest to help decide if we, as a
region, should put out efforts towards this goal or should let the subject
rest and work on other things.

Q: Does this mean that we must become a Kingdom in the near future?
A: Not necessarily, but it is the first step in doing so.  If the north
becomes a Principality, becoming a Kingdom will be a whole separate
application process with more stringent requirements.

Q: We don't have a name, device, ect. When are we going to decide this?
A: First steps first. This is the first polling to gauge whether to pursue
further steps that will include input on the finer details of what the
potential Principality will look like.

Q: What are the requirements and responsibilities of a Principality and its
A: I have made a link that directly outlines what is written on this matter
from Society Law.

Q: What is the percentage of Yes or No votes needed?
A: A specific percentage has not been promised. This poll is a measure of
your opinions, not a vote. Your opinions directly influence whether a
region can become a Principality; however, it is not the only factor and
only the Board of Directors can make the decision to create a Principality.

Q: This polling will destroy our Kingdom!
A: Not really a question, but ok. The Kingdom of Ansteorra has dealt with
more contentious questions in the past and survived.  The dream is alive
and resilient within our lands.

Q: Who can be polled?
A: Anyone who lives within the zip codes of the Northern Region who is not
a minor. Input will be accepted from both members and non-members.

Q: I cannot make it to the polling! I want to be heard! What do I do?
A: You can be polled by proxy by sending your response by email to:
northern at seneschal.ansteorra.org
Be sure to include your Legal Name, SCA Name, Membership Number
(if applicable), Zip code, and Local SCA group name.

Q: This FAQ is terrible! It did not answer my question.
A: Also not a question, but fair enough. Please feel free to send any
questions to northern at seneschal.ansteorra.org
