F. Provision for Replacement of NC members
Name Council representatives may need to resign. In order to provide for a
quick, effective, and representative method of replacing the constituency's
NC members, the following section defines replacement methods.
Each person running for Names Council representative may choose a
with whom to run. The replacement candidate must be the designated
representative of an
organization that is a member of the NCC, and have the approval of that
organization to run. The replacement must be a citizen of the same
geographic region as the Names Council candidate. The names of the two
individuals shall be listed together on the voting ballot. A Names Council
candidate need not run with a replacement candidate.
The replacement candidate shall not be a member of the Names Council until
and unless the elected member formally resigns. If or when a resignation
takes place, the replacement candidate immediately succeeds the elected
candidate as the NC member for the rest of the original member's term.
If a NC candidate who resigns does not have a replacement candidate, he or
she will be succeeeded by the Adcom member who received the 4th highest vote
total in the NC election.
