Scheduled Elections are held at the Spring General Meeting in March/April 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.
