Scheduled Elections are held at the Spring General Meeting in March to elect members of the Executive for the upcoming year. Executives serve their term in office from May 1st to April 30th of the following year.

Unscheduled By-Elections may be called if new positions are added to the Executive mid-way through the year or if a position becomes vacant due to resignation or impeachment.

Each Election is overseen and administered by a Chief Electoral Officer and at least one Deputy Electoral Officer. Hiring for these positions begins in early to mid-February, with appointments being made by the Executive before each election. Learn more about the hiring of Electoral Officers.
