The question has come up pertaining to a “number or percentage of votes required to win a contest during our Department elections”. According to Department ByLaws, Article I, Section 14, “The candidate for each office that receives the most votes shall be declared the winner.” And the Rules of Procedure #22 “…The Candidate for each office that receives the most votes shall be declared the winner…”
Here are pages from the Constitution & ByLaws and Rules of Procedure, from 2016 and 2017, which clarify this question:
- 2016 Constitution & ByLaws
- 2017 Constitution & ByLaws
- 2016 Rules of Procedure
- 2017 Rules of Procedure
We hope this clears up any confusion. If you still have questions about this or any of the voting process, please email our Department Assistant Adjutant, Bruce Comer at [email protected].
