This will include, but is not limited to:
a/ An outline the basic tenets of your new religion.
b/ A list of its Ten Commandments.
c/ A Holy City (where it is and and why).
Short-term: to gain the most amount of converts.
Long-term: to be a viable, lasting religion that will grow and expand for many years to come.
Based on those criteria, voters will choose the hypothetical religion to which they would be most likely to convert or join. Hence, votes equal converts.
