Voting Procedures

For each candidate indicate one of

  • First Preference 
  • Highly Approve
  • Approve
  • Neutral
  • Reject

The quota for election to is to have greater than one third of the highly approved votes (including first preferences) and at least half of the approval votes (including highly approved and first preferences).

Where too many candidates reach the quota, then count first preference votes to determine the winners.

Where not enough candidates have a quota then, of the candidates without a quota, we exclude the candidate with highest disapproval until we are left with just one more candidate than needed, then use first preferences to determine the winners.

The tie breaker for equal first preferences is to count the number of high approvals. If that still leaves a tie then count number of approvals, then subtract number of rejections.
