Election of Committee Members
       1. Nominations must be received in writing in the Lower Table Office between 10.00 am and 5.00 pm on Monday 28 June 2010 (the day before the election). Nominations must contain a signed statement made by the candidate declaring their willingness to stand for election, accompanied by the signatures of not fewer than 12 nor more than 15 Members.
       2. As soon as possible after the close of nominations, the list of candidates and their sponsors will be placed in the Vote Office in the Members’ Lobby and published on the intranet.
       The Ballot
       3. The ballot will be held in the division lobbies between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon on Tuesday 29 June. Arrangements will otherwise follow those for the ballot for the election of the Chair.
       4. Members each have one vote, which is transferable. They place candidates in their preferred order using the figures ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’, etc. The figure ‘1’ represents the vote and is mandatory. The rest are contingency markings and are optional but allow the elector to influence the final result. Members should therefore express preferences until they are unable, or do not wish, to differentiate between any of the remaining candidates.
       The Count
       5. The ballot will be counted under the Single Transferable Vote system. It will be subject to the constraints set out in paragraph (2)(f) of the Order of the House of 15 June (Election of Backbench Business Committee).
       For further details please see the Briefing Note available in the Vote Office and on the intranet.
