Every submission to be voted on requires a proposer and a seconder. If a submission fails to have either a proposer or seconder, it will not be further discussed.
All voting to be done by simple majority, in other words the option with the most votes wins, and abstentions are irrelevant.
For voting which is changing class rules or constitution, a 2/3rd majority constituted as above is necessary.
Any elections will be held in a secret ballot except by unanimous acclamation.
Only full members in good standing are entitled to vote or nominate a proxy if they are not able to attend personally.
Those not appointed as a national delegate may attend as an observer but will not be able to speak unless invited to do so by the president.
