The law does not specify the manner in which Delegates and Alternates can be elected other than prescribing that “voting” must be conducted by secret ballot.

If the number of persons seeking election for Delegate is equal to or less than the number of Delegate seats allocated to the Precinct (no contest), then they may be elected by acclamation.

If the number of nominees exceeds the number of Delegate seats allocated to this Precinct, then a Caucus must nominate and vote for Delegates. Those not elected as Delegates can be elected Alternate in descending order of votes received. This method requires only one round of balloting and has the advantage of rank-ordered Alternates, which can expedite seating of Alternates at a convention. Other voting methods may be advanced and explained by their proponents, subject to a vote to approve a single, final method of election.
