    Is it better to get two nominations than one or does it matter? It seems like one does the trick but would WP grade a candidate higher if he/she got more than one? Or do MOC share info with one another about who they are nominating?

    Two nominations is indeed better than one. Unless you are holding an LOA conditional only upon receiving a nomination. Two gives the SA more flexibility in awarding you an appointment.

    You would not "grade" better, no influence there. But having two or more is yet another slate of nominations from which you might be selected to receive the appointment.

    In our state, the Senators sent a letter and said if one Senator gave you a nomination please call them to cancel your appointment with the other senator. The same with our congerssman. We were told you only need one nomination and a second would not make a difference.

    MOC prefer sharing the wealth and the most people possible an opportunity. While you only NEED one, more will certainly help. Otherwise it would only be possible to have one.
