While the presidential appointment process was underway, another process that actually involved voting was underway. This year the Republic announced its Citizen of the Year 2016 – Utopia-Lee Richards. After nominations were sought, all citizens of the Republic were invited to vote in an online poll.
Utopia-Lee joins last year’s Citizen of the Year, Amanda Donnet. To find out more about Utopia-Lee and the other nominees, visit this page on the Republic’s website.
