The Assessor should make determinations whether or not the
Vizers of various Groups, as Players have effective control of
the Group's Voting Tokens.

Rule 1873 (A Duty to Vote) names the Assessor as the person required
to detect and report Failure to Vote infractions, and thus imposes on
em the duty of determining whether any Player is an Active Voter with
effective control of more than 3 VTs (among other duties).
The Vizier of a Group must be a Player and may be an Active Voter. It
is possible, though unlikely, that a group's Ordinances could give the
Vizier the ability to dispose of the Group's assets in any way e
wishes. Thus to determine correctly the Vizier's effectively
controlled VTs, the Assessor should determine whether the Group's
assets fall in this category.
This arises out of the Assessor's duty to determine whether the Vizier
has committed an infraction, and not out of any duty to determine
whether the Group committed a Failure to Vote Infraction. As Judge
Michael has noted in CFJ 1135, a Group is not a Voter and cannot be
guilty of this Infraction.
