How Does the Election Process Work?
Votes for SIOP president-elect and officer positions are recorded using the Ware single transferable vote method (voting is done by ranking candidates and an automatic runoff is calculated, per the procedures used for APA’s presidential election). Candidates are placed in rank order by voters, and each person elected must receive a majority of the votes cast. Ranking of all candidates is encouraged but not required.
After each voting round, the candidate with the lowest number of votes is eliminated. If the voter's first choice receives the lowest number of votes, the vote is transferred to their second choice for the second round and so on until one candidate reaches the required quota. This system is also known as a “single transferable vote” or instant runoff method.
On the tally sheet the transferred votes referred to above are shown in the gray boxes. In Round 2 and beyond, ballots that include only candidates that have been eliminated are considered "exhausted." The number of these ballots for each round is indicated on the tally sheet.
