Motion to Adopt Special Rule of Order Governing Senate Executive Committe Election

That each elector will be permitted to vote for six people, that the four with the highest number of votes will be elected, and that the fifth and sixth highest will be alternates.

In event of a tie for fourth place there will immediately be a further ballot; in event of a tie for fifth place there will be a further ballot if and when an alternate needs to be appointed; in even of a tie for sixth place there will be a further ballot if and when a second alternate needs to be appointed.

*Note: Rules of order, which have been adopted by the Senate, will not cover SEC elections until the referendum on the Senate's Charter and Bylaws is over (which is on the same day that ballots will be counted for this year's SEC election). This proposed special rule is very similar to the rules that will govern future SEC elections and clarifies the authority of the CFS to handle the election in the planned, customary way.
