RES VOTING

Bylaw 4. Section 4. Add sentence: “In the event of a tie, the resolution with the highest number of initial first-place votes will win. If still tied, the resolution with the highest number of second-place votes will win, and so forth.”
Bylaw 4. Section 4. Strike the following: “After all votes are cast, the number of valid ballots will be determined, and it will require a majority of that number (50% plus one) of first place votes for a choice to be elected.”
Rationale: The sentence is duplicative and potentially erroneous. For example, if 3 ballots were submitted, a vote of 2-1 produces a majority. But the 50% plus one requirement would require a vote of 3-0 (1.5 plus 1).
