Our organization's bylaws indicate that candidates must receive "a majority of the ballots cast" in order to be elected (those exact words). Our election is done with a slated ballot for multiple officer positions. In this case, can a candidate win with only a majority of votes counted for either of two candidates not including any abstentions in one of the officer positions when that number is less than 50% +1 of the total number of ballots cast with abstentions included? Everything below this line is intended to clarify my question above and probably isn't necessary to read. Given
