The successful candidates will be elected/re-elected by a simple majority of the board members present at the meeting. Neither proxy nor remote voting methods will be accepted. The number of available spaces will be equivalent to 1/3 of the maximum size of the board as defined in the region bylaws. By way of example, if the size of the Board is 27, the number of available spaces at the Jan election would be 9. If there are more individuals running than available spaces, the individuals with the highest number of votes above a simple majority will prevail. In the case of a tie where there is only one space available, a runoff vote will be held and the individual garnering the most votes will fill the vacancy.
