What happens if the result of an election is inconclusive where there are three choices none of which receives a majority of the votes cast?
In an election involving at least three choices and none of the choices receives a majority of the valid votes cast, a runoff election will be conducted between the two choices receiving the most and second most number of votes. See Section 2422.28 of the Regulations.
For example, in an election where 500 people voted and assuming no challenged ballots, if labor organization A receives 125 votes cast, labor organization B receives 240 votes cast, and "no union" receives 135 votes cast, there will be a runoff election between the two choices "labor organization B" and "no union." If labor organization B receives a majority of the valid votes cast in the runoff election it is certified as the exclusive representative.
