Voting System
How does it work?
1. Instead of a certain number of votes
per ballot, every single potential is
voted on individually.
*No need for comparison; i.e. “picking
one person over another even if
they’re both qualified”*
Voting System
2. After every discussion, each active
member votes:
yes
no
abstain
on each candidate.
*discussion is fresh in memory to make
vote*
Voting System
3. Based on a percentage
(number of “yes’s”, “no’s”)
the candidate either moves
on or does not move on.
*Everyone is judged on their
own merit*
Bylaws
The Recruitment Chairperson presents to the Residents a slideshow with one
rushee per slide (includes their name, photo, class standing, and major/minor)
and the floor is open for discussion. Any Resident who would like to discuss the
rushee raises their hand to be recognized by the chair. If a member raises their
hand for discussion, there should typically be at least a one-minute discussion
about the pros and cons of giving the rushee a NO on the current round of
voting. The discussion time can be extended with a motion to extend, but will be
capped at five minutes. After the discussion, all resident members present who
are in good standing with the fraternity and have completed the appropriate
amount of Recruitment Hours necessary for voting, and who have been present
during the time of discussion on said potential member, will submit a written
vote of YES, NO, or ABSTAIN, in order to have it entered in a SECRET
BALLOT. The President, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Recruitment Chair will count
the votes, after which the decision will be told to the Resident Council.
Depending on the number of resident members at the time, a 15-20% of NO
votes will result in a rushee not receiving a bid. If the rushee receives 50% or
more ABSTAIN votes, they will not be extended a bid. If the rushee receives
less than 15-20% NO votes, and less than 50% of ABSTAIN votes, they will be
extended an invitation to the next round.
Voting Hours
If you don’t spend time with them why
should you decide on them?
Voting Hours
3 Hours needed to vote in Round 1
4 Hours needed to vote in Round 2
5 Hours needed to vote in Round 3
Recruitment Chairperson will log
every members hours
Value Based Recruitment
By implementing this
voting system we can
build a strong,
structured pledge
class in an efficient
manner.
