There were 41 ballots in the election, two ballots only voted for the alternate delegate positions. The results as follows calculated using STV/RCV.

CO-CHAIR (3 positions)

39 votes. 11 votes to be elected. 39 total/(3 seat +1) + 1 = 10.75 --> 11 votes

Round 1: Falzone (11), Oviatt (8), Tholl (5), Sanchez-Bartz (3), Thacker (3), Vilschick (3), Scavicchio (2), Thale (2), Fry (1), Hernandez (1), Stinson (0), Manley (0), Twitchell (0), 

**Falzone - Elected**
Stinson, Manley, Twitchell eliminated. Hernandez, Fry eliminated. Those 2 votes are reallocated to Oviatt based on voter preference (next ranked person still in the running).

Scavicchio, Thale eliminated. 2 votes allocated to Oviatt. 1 vote allocated to Tholl. 1 vote no remaining preference.

Round 3: Oviatt (12), Tholl (6), Sanchez-Bartz (3), Thacker (3), Vilschick (3)

**Oviatt - Elected.** One vote over 11 required. 1 excess vote reallocated to Tholl based on preference of Oviatt voters (over half of 12 Oviatt voters next remaining preference is Tholl).

Round 4: Tholl (7), Sanchez-Bartz (3), Thacker (3), Vilschick (3)

**Tholl - Elected.** No one meets threshold. Tholl has highest total remaining. [Note, even using other allocation methods, secondary voter preference of Thacker, Vilschick, and Sanchez-Bartz voters still favor Tholl]

SECRETARY (1 position)
38 ballots - 20 to be elected

Round 1: Gonzales (37), Write-In "Matthew Martinez" (1)

1 tossed ballot [Write-in vote for someone who is both over 35 and publicly a Libertarian. Thus, they are ineligible to serve the Green Party Youth Caucus and presumably not aligned with the caucus principles and explicitly defined platform interpretation of anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism, intersectionality, and political independence as per our by-laws.]

**Gonzales - Elected.**

ALTERNATE DELEGATE TO THE NC (1 position)
41 ballots - 21 to be elected

Round 1: Looney (23), Avila (8), Langford (5), Hayes (2), Noll (1), Frame (1), Write-In "Kenneth Mejia" (1)
