Elections of NAEOP officers will be by electronic voting and will require a simple majority of the members voting. The period for casting ballots will occur after confirmation of eligibility of candidates and be open for at least two weeks after ballots are distributed to all eligible voters. In the event of a write-in-candidate receiving the most votes, official appointment will occur only after the nominating committee has confirmed the write-in-candidate is eligible. The chair of the nominating committee shall inform the President of the election results and notify each candidate of the outcome prior to announcing the outcome to the general membership of the Association.
