      This is the current version:

      1. Coordinator Elections
        1. Head Coordinator Elections
          1. The Head Coordinator shall be elected every February and shall serve until the end of elections the following year.
          2. Nominations for the position shall open on February 6th and close at the same time on February 13th.
          3. Voting will last until February 27th. In the case of a tie, voting will be held March 1st through 7th with the former Head Coordinator serving during the interim. No other proposals may be passed or introduced during this runoff.
          4. No proposals relating to this election, election process, or the voting procedure may be proposed nor ratified within seven (7) days of the beginning of the voting period until the end of the election(s).
        1. Other Coordinator Elections
          1. The Head Coordinator will nominate all other Coordinators.
          2. The Head Coordinator will accept applications for nominations for a minimum of two (2) weeks from the time the application procedure opens, which must be posted to the Council, ST, OWBN-OOC, and mailing lists in addition to the OWbN website.
              1. The Head Coordinator is required to nominate any applicant who has the support of five (5) or more member chronicles of OWBN. They may decline candidates with less support at their discretion.
              2. Each candidate must list prominently on their application from where their support is coming.
                1. Chronicles may support more than one candidate in this manner and they do not have to vote for the candidate(s) they supported.
                2. Current Coordinators may also support individual candidates. This support is a traditional method, and may count towards the five (5) support required, but is not officially required to be counted towards the support required.
          1. Should only one person submit an application for a given position, then the Head Coordinator may nominate that one applicant without a second applicant on the same ballot or extend the time for collecting applications as the Head Coordinator sees fit.
          2. The Head Coordinator may indicate which nominee is preferred.
          3. The Ballot will be presented to Council seven (7) days before the voting period begins for discussion, but no later than March 27th without a ratified proposal granting the Head Coordinator an extension.
          4. The Ballot will be posted on the Council, ST, and OWBN-OOC mailing lists at the beginning of the vote discussion period.
          5. The vote will open on the day after the fourteen (14) day council discussion period, and close at the same time seven (7) days later.
          6. All candidates for Coordinator positions will be put on Council during the fourteen day discussion period, and election week, to defend and explain their platforms. Those not elected shall be removed once the voting period is done.
          7. The nominee carrying the most votes on Council shall become Coordinator.
            1. In case of a tie, the Head Coordinator may either break the tie or hold a run-off election between all tied parties.
            2. For a run-off election, only the candidates who were tied will be on the ballot. The option to reject all candidates will be removed. The option to abstain will remain.
            3. If the election is still tied after the run-off vote, the HC will break the tie.
          1. Coordinators will serve beginning two weeks after the election vote for their election closes, including any run-off election that may have taken place. The current Coordinator will be expected to brief the Coordinator-elect during these two weeks on issues and events relating to the particular Coordinator position being assumed by the Coordinator-elect.
          2. No proposals relating to elections, election process, or the voting procedure may be proposed or ratified from the time the Council discussion of the ballot begins until the time all elections end.
          3. The Assistant Head Coordinator and Second Assistant Head Coordinator positions shall be treated as the same position for application and election purposes, with the nominees carrying the highest and second highest number of votes becoming Coordinator. This vote shall have multiple acceptable options equivalent to the number of AHC positions available. Thus each Chronicle will receive a number of votes equal to the number of positions available.
        1. Special Elections
          1. Should any Coordinator position become unfilled during a term, a special election must be held.
          2. The Head Coordinator may appoint someone to fill the position until the special election is completed.
          3. The appointee will be treated as an Elected Coordinator, except that the appointee will only serve until the Special Election is complete.
          4. The Head Coordinator will announce the Special Election on the Council, ST, and OWBN-OOC mailing lists and will accept applications for fourteen (14) days.
          5. The vote will then proceed following the bylaws in Administrative Bylaws, Section 4, Subsection B, Other Coordinator Elections.
          6. Should the position become vacant within one (1) month of the Head Coordinator Election, an appointee may serve until elections are complete.

      [PROPOSAL] REVISION TO ADMINISTRATIVE BYLAW 4: COORDINATOR ELECTIONS

      It is hereby proposed by the Head Coordinator that Administrative
      Bylaw 4, which covers Coordinator Elections, be revised to the
      following:

      Coordinator Elections

      Head Coordinator Elections

      The Head Coordinator shall be elected every February
      and shall serve until the end of elections the following year.

      Nominations for the position shall open on February
      1st and close at the same time on February 7th.

      Voting will last until February 14th. In the case of a
      tie, voting will be held February 15th through 22nd with the former
      Head Coordinator serving during the interim. No other proposals may be
      passed or introduced during this runoff.

      No proposals relating to this election, election
      process, or the voting procedure may be proposed nor ratified within
      seven (7) days of the beginning of the voting period until the end of
      the election(s).

      Other Coordinator Elections

      The Head Coordinator will nominate all other Coordinators.

      The Head Coordinator will accept applications for
      nominations for a minimum of one (1) week from the time the
      application procedure opens, which must be posted to the Council, ST,
      OWBN-OOC, and mailing lists in addition to the OWbN website.

      The Head Coordinator is required to nominate any
      applicant who has the support of five (5) or more member chronicles of
      OWBN. They may decline candidates with less support at their
      discretion.

      Each candidate must list prominently on their
      application from where their support is coming.

      Chronicles may support more than one candidate
      in this manner and they do not have to vote for the candidate(s) they
      supported.

      Should only one person submit an application for a
      given position, then the Head Coordinator may nominate that one
      applicant without a second applicant on the same ballot or extend the
      time for collecting applications as the Head Coordinator sees fit.

      The Ballot will be presented to Council three (3) days
      before the voting period begins for discussion, but no later than
      February 25th without a ratified proposal granting the Head
      Coordinator an extension.

      The Ballot will be posted on the Council, ST, and
      OWBN-OOC mailing lists at the beginning of the vote discussion period.

      The vote will open on the day after the seven (7) day
      council discussion period, and close no earlier than the same time
      seven (7) days later.

      All candidates for Coordinator positions will be put
      on Council during the fourteen day discussion period, and election
      week, to defend and explain their platforms. Those not elected shall
      be removed once the voting period is done.

      The nominee carrying the most votes on Council shall
      become Coordinator.

      In case of a tie, the Head Coordinator may either
      break the tie or hold a run-off election between all tied parties.

      For a run-off election, only the candidates who
      were tied will be on the ballot. The option to reject all candidates
      will be removed. The option to abstain will remain.

      If the election is still tied after the run-off
      vote, the HC will break the tie.

      Coordinators will serve beginning two weeks after the
      election vote for their election closes, including any run-off
      election that may have taken place. The current Coordinator will be
      expected to brief the Coordinator-elect during these two weeks on
      issues and events relating to the particular Coordinator position
      being assumed by the Coordinator-elect, as well as remit any necessary
      documents or duly passed accounts.

      No proposals relating to elections, election process,
      or the voting procedure may be proposed or ratified from the time the
      Council discussion of the ballot begins until the time all elections
      end.

      The Assistant Head Coordinator and Second Assistant
      Head Coordinator positions shall be treated as the same position for
      application andelection purposes, with the nominees carrying the
      highest and second highest number of votes becoming Coordinator. This
      vote shall have multiple acceptable options equivalent to the number
      of AHC positions available. Thus each Chronicle will receive a number
      of votes equal to the number of positions available.

      Special Elections

      Should any Coordinator position become unfilled during
      a term, a special election must be held.

      The Head Coordinator may appoint someone to fill the
      position until the special election is completed.

      The appointee will be treated as an Elected
      Coordinator, except that the appointee will only serve until the
      Special Election is complete.

      The Head Coordinator will announce the Special
      Election on the Council, ST, and OWBN-OOC mailing lists and will
      accept applications for seven (7) days.

      The vote will then proceed following the bylaws in
      Administrative Bylaws, Section 4, Subsection B, Other Coordinator
      Elections.

      Should the position become vacant within one (1) month of
      the Head Coordinator Election, an appointee may serve until elections
      are complete.

      This is being done to reduce the number of weeks involved in the process.
