Gender parity

At least 3 of the first 6 positions on the above list of voting officers shall be occupied by women, and at least half of the total voting positions. A woman job-sharing counts as half a position for this calculation. If the winners of the ballot do not include the minimum number of women required, other women candidates may be promoted to achieve parity.
