Voting Procedure for National Science Board Elections

Approved by the National Science Board
November 20, 2003

Existing NSB Nomination and Election Protocol (NSB-01-49, revised February 20, 2002) is revised such that upon completion of the nomination procedures, election to each office will proceed as follows:

1. Each Board member votes for one person (Plurality Voting). If one person receives more than 50% of the votes, that person wins. If not, go to Step 2. If there is a three or more-way tie, repeat Step 1 with only the tied candidates running.

2. The top two vote getters in Step 1 will compete in a run-off election. Each Board member votes for one person from the top two vote getters. If one person gets more than 50% of the votes, that person wins. If there is a tie, repeat Step 2 until one person gets more than 50% of the votes.
