    As much as I would like to take credit for this idea I can't, its not mine but that of a well known and well respected player from LS. During a conversation after the recent elections she stated "Its so Simple, Just Code the Game so that you can only Vote Where You Live" Meaning to vote on a Shard you must have a House placed there. Established Residents so to speak. This makes perfect sense to me, I know of no where that a people that doesn't live in a Land have voting rights there. I certainly would'nt expect someone from California to be able to vote in Texas. Why would anyone be allowed to Vote on a Shard they don't live on? If you don't live on the Shard you have Zero vested interests there and no given right to Vote there.
    IMHO this is a perfect fix and though I am no Dev. I don't think its would be that hard to Code.

    I welcome all feedback on this topic and thank you for your time

    i have developed characters and play on 15 shards, and have substantial interest on 4 of those shards.

    "less interest" would probably be a better word than "zero interest"
