Election Process - Section 2
All persons nominated by either the nominating committee or by petition must be placed before the members. When nominations are closed, tellers are appointed by the chair, ballots are distributed, the vote is taken and tallied by the tellers, and the results announced. All elections are determined by plurality of voice and will be by ballot except where there is only one nominee for each position to be filled. Nominations cannot be made from the floor unless insufficient nominations have been made by the nominating committee or by petition to provide for one nominee for each position to be filled, or circumstances prevent the candidacy of one nominee for a position to be filled. Only those positions without a nominee are subject to nominations from the floor. In the event nominations from the floor are permitted and result in more than one nominee for a position to be filled, when nominations have been closed, tellers are appointed by the chair, ballots are distributed, the vote is taken and tallied by the tellers, and the results announced. When only one member is nominated for each position to be filled, the chair may take a voice vote or declare each nominee elected by general consent or acclamation at the annual meeting.
