Ballots[edit | edit source]
For the Secretarial election, instant runoff voting (IRV) was used, whereby voters rank the candidates in order of their preference. The primary vote of each candidate is then tallied, and the candidate with the least votes is eliminated and their votes preferentially distributed in a repeated process until one candidate achieves a majority. If there is only one candidate, they face a confidence vote instead.
The election committee consisted of founder Kavagrad, New Samon, and Ghillemear. The voting period and following release of results was delayed, running from 9 to 13 March (instead of 8 to 11 March, as originally scheduled).
