“If there is only one position open, officers will be chosen by a simple majority.
In cases where there are 2 available seats, both candidates must receive at least 35% of the vote to be elected. If nobody reaches this threshold, the bottom 50% worst ranked candidates shall be eliminated and another vote shall be held. If the second candidate does not reach the 35% threshold, only one person shall occupy the position.”
