Elections shall be conducted by secret ballot. All members of the National Executive Board shall be elected by a majority vote, i.e. at least 50% plus 1, to be declared elected.

The application of the majority rule is not difficult when only two candidates are on the ballot for one position. However, when three or more candidates run for one office, it is unlikely that a single candidate will receive a majority on the first ballot.

When no candidate obtains a majority vote, the candidate receiving the fewest votes shall be dropped and a second ballot taken. The process shall continue until one candidate has obtained a majority vote.
