<p>The WMAU board election employs an <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optional_Preferential_Voting">optional preferential ballot</a> in all categories. 
To vote, number each box next to the nominees of your choice in the order of your preference. You can choose to enter a number in all, 
one, or some of the boxes.<p>

<p>For example, the following votes are all valid:</p>

<div class="votingnominee"><div class="votingcategorytitle">Example 1: All boxes numbered</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="16" size="1" value="2" disabled /> First nominee</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="16" size="1" value="1" disabled  /> Second nominee</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="19" size="1" value="3" disabled  /> No Award</div></div>

<div class="votingnominee"><div class="votingcategorytitle">Example 2: One box numbered</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="16" size="1" value="" disabled /> First nominee</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="16" size="1" value="" disabled  /> Second nominee</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="19" size="1" value="1" disabled  /> No Award</div></div>

<div class="votingnominee"><div class="votingcategorytitle">Example 3: Some boxes numbered</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="16" size="1" value="1" disabled /> First nominee</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="16" size="1" value="" disabled  /> Second nominee</div>
<div class="votingnominee"><input type="text" name="19" size="1" value="2" disabled  /> No Award</div></div>

<p>The numbers must be sequential, starting from 1 in each of the categories, and you should avoid using duplicate numbers in the one category. If you make any errors
you will be automatically informed once you hit save, and given the opportunity to make any changes.</p>

<p>You are not required to vote in all categories.</p>
