PROPOSAL TO AMEND RULES OF ORDER OF THE MANOA FACULTY CONGRESS AND SENATE: VOTING METHODS

  • ARTICLE II. ELECTIONS CODE.
  • Section 4. Elections for the Senate.
  • b. Final Elections for the Senate.
  • (page 4 of 6)
  • Revise Paragraph 8

Original:

Candidates will be elected senators by counting the preferential votes using the Meek method of counting in the Single Transferable Vote (SVT) system. Alternates for each constituency shall be determined by repeating the vote count with a larger number of elected positions for that constituency, the exact number of alternate positions to be determined by the Committee on Faculty Service based on the number of elected senators in the constituency and the number of candidates in the constituency.

Revised:

Candidates will be elected senators by counting the preferential votes using the Instant Runoff method of counting in the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system. Alternates for each constituency shall be determined by the Instant Runoff rankings, the exact number of alternate positions to be determined by the Committee on Faculty Service based on the number of elected senators in the constituency and the number of candidates in the constituency.
