Excerpt from the ISSMO Constitution Regarding the Executive Committee
The electronic voting is to be closed at mid-night before the ISSMO General Assembly Meeting is being held. Normally nine new EC members are to be elected and thus only those ballots are valid in which exactly nine candidates are voted for.
Members of the Executive Committee must represent a fair geographical distribution, reflecting the membership of the Society. No more than 50% of the Executive Committee may be from any one geographic zone and at least three geographic zones must be represented in this group. If only two zones would be represented on the EC on the basis of the election, then the elected candidate with the least number of votes from those two zones is replaced by the candidate with the highest number of votes from the remaining geographic zone. The new Executive Committee takes over immediately and elects the new office bearers.
