4.           During the GA, only members in good standing will be given a ballot. The ballot boxes and election area will be on the first floor of the gym near the front entrance.
5.           Each candidate may designate a representative to watch the counting of votes.  Such representative of the candidate must be presented to the Chairperson of the Nomination and Election Committee of the NAA (NomEleC) for identification purposes before 8 PM of 2 September 2017.

8.           Counting shall be done by NomEleC members present during the election.  Only valid ballots shall be counted.
9.           A ballot will be invalidated if the member voted for more than the allowed number of candidates.  A write-in candidate (a candidate written in the ballot but not among the recognized nominees) will not be counted and does not invalidate a ballot unless – even with the invalidation of the write-in candidate the ballot still has more than the allowed number of candidates. 
10.      Elected members of the BOT shall be announced after the NomEleC confirms the results; and the in-coming set of BOT Officers will be announced in the alumni hub after the regular meeting of the BOT scheduled for September.
