I was just reading a book on this, which I reference time and again, and is still on my desk right now. "The Timing of Events: Electional Astrology" by Bruce Scofield. Great book on the topic!
Whenever electing a date, the natal chart must be taken into consideration. It is of primary consideration, since you are creating a "marriage" between yourself and the date in question. You will want to see favorable aspects from transits to your natal chart. Secondly, look at transit-to-transit aspects. Start from the broad (slow-moving planets) and work your way down to the narrow (fast-moving planets). Since Jupiter just moved into Pisces, sign of its rulership, this adds a bonus point to any elections now (Venus enters Taurus on March 31). Look for a time when Jupiter is making a favorable aspect to your natal chart and your partner's chart. If it aspects the composite chart favorably, this is helpful too. Then see if you can add some favorable aspects from the inner planets. Lastly, find a time during the day when these favorable aspects are prominent in the election chart. At the time when you sit down to elect a chart, your natal Mercury should also be favorably aspected.
Interesting statistics on the signs. I meant to comment on the SignsAlign statistics as well, but I couldn't find the information. In assessing statistical significance with regard to sun signs, the proportion of signs in general needs to be taken into consideration. As I recall, more people are born in the Spring, for example, than in Winter. I can't remember where I read this or what the actual figures are. I can't find any of my books by Michel Gauquelin.

some of you may remember, i wrote last year asking for help in figuring out my wedding date. i am still engaged and newly relocated to europe. i must marry by may 9th (visa requirements). i wonder if any of you know someone who can help advise me on a favorable wedding date. i have narrowed my possible wedding date to anytime between & including March 26th - April 30th.
and lastly, this summer i went to a regional BurningMan festival in the desert of Spain. my future husband and i volunteered to be in charge of their Census. i included the simple "what is your astrological sign" question. check out the so obvious, they're surprising results (at least to a novice like myself):
also, if you happen to know of a numerologist you can recommend, i also need to decide if i will change my last name.
