Rules Concerning Endorsements.
A position on a candidate requires a sixty percent (60%) vote of the club members. Members always have the option of voting “No Endorsement.”
If no candidate receives sixty percent (60%), subsequent ballots shall be taken after deleting all candidates receiving zero votes and the candidate receiving the least non-zero votes. In the case of a tie for least non-zero votes, all candidates receiving that least number of non-zero votes shall be deleted from the subsequent ballot.
