Voting Process

Voter approves of as many candidates/options as they wish, by selecting those candidates on the ballot. Voters can only cast one approval vote for each candidate.

NOTE: The Approval voting system is not used to approve individual candidates for positions. The Plurality voting system should be used for approving individuals.
