A ballot of members will be conducted if the number of candidates exceeds the number of seats available at the closing date of nominations. For clarification, it is intended that the highest-polling candidate nominated by the England and Wales and Rugby League Trusts respectively will be elected to the England and Wales and Rugby League seats and the two highest-polling candidates of those nominated by any member Trusts will be elected to the General seats.
The General Seat/s will be filled by the highest-polling candidate/s not already elected to an England and Wales or Rugby League seat.
Candidates for General Seats need not be serving on any council.
Please note that the above terms may be affected by the decision of members at the SD AGM on the weekend of 28th/29th July 2018 regarding a new organisation or an Independent SD.
