The Election is the central pillar of the OCESS Pseudoparliamentary model. It allows the members of the club to choose their own leaders, allowing for fairer choices and a greater sense of involvement within the club. It uses ranked-choice voting, where voters list their desired commanders from most to least wanted. The winner becomes commander, the runner-up becomes subcommander. In the event of a tie, the decision is made by the person for whose position the tie was reached. Election is held on the last week of May, and the official transition occurs on June 26th, with an inauguration occurring at SARP.
