Balloting in the Event of Single Nominees.
Balloting in the Event of Single Nominees. In case there are no more nominees than vacancies, the ballot described in Bylaw 7.2.4 is omitted, and the Secretary-Parliamentarian presents the facts to the Division or the appropriate Faculty at its next regular meeting. The Division or Faculty may then authorize the Secretary-Parliamentarian to cast a single ballot for the nominee or nominees or may conduct an election by ballot between persons already nominated and persons nominated from the floor. Faculties are not required to meet solely for the purpose of holding an election. Instead, the persons nominated shall be declared elected until the next regular meeting occurs, when their election may be confirmed or other persons nominated from the floor may be elected.
