Polling Instructions and Links

The Crown of the Middle Kingdom wishes the widest possible counsel on matters relating to the Kingdom; thus, it is requested that all members respond to this baronial poll for the Barony of Illiton.

All baronial residents should please complete the poll located at this Link: RESIDENT

A resident is defined as a person who lives within the geographic boundaries of the barony regardless of Society membership status. Please check with your Baronial Seneschal or on the Middle Kingdom website if you are unsure of your group’s geographic area.
Click Here for: Middle Kingdom Groups >> Find a group by Zip code.

Those who live outside of the Baronial borders are welcome to complete a “non-resident” poll at this Link: NON-RESIDENT
While these polls are tallied separately, the Crown still values the opinions of all members of Their populace.

Please note that your polls will be VERIFIED by your membership number, address, and name.
Only cast one poll.


Polls must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, May 8, 2021.
