These rules are incorporated into the Rules for Grand Chapter as stated in Rule 17 of those Rules.
Elections for any contested Grand officer position will be held by secret ballot. Candidate names may be printed on the ballot provided that the ballots do not give any preference to any candidates. The candidates should be listed in the same order as drawn for speaking. All candidates’ names will be displayed on an overhead projection or similar medium, viewable to all voting delegates. Ballots shall be counted by Grand Officers not running for election serving as tellers, appointed by the Grand Consul and assisted by the Headquarters Staff or by electronic methods monitored by the Head Teller. Said ballots shall be preserved for a period of 120 days and shall be accessible to any member in good standing who wishes to see them. In lieu of paper ballots, the Grand Chapter may utilize an electronic voting mechanism with due regard for security and the integrity of the voting process. Electronic voting records need not be retained past the adjournment of the Grand Chapter.
