Voting 

Due to the current exceptional circumstances, voting will take place online using Zoom, with up to 3 elected Tellers overseeing the process. You will be notified by the Chairperson when a poll is about to take place, and receive an on-screen prompt with a digital ballot. You will then have a limited amount of time to cast your vote by clicking on your preferred option. Results will then be counted and verified, before being announced to everyone online. 

In the case of an equal number of votes being cast for a resolution, recommendation or an amendment, the vote of the Chairperson decides.
