Tie vote

We are about to hold our annual general meeting where we elect the Society's board of directors.  We have five vacancies.  What happens if there are say seven candidates nominated and candidates five and six get the same number of votes.  Do we repeat the whole election or only vote to break the tie between candidates five and six?  Thank you.

The top four candidates are elected. An election would be held again for the fifth seat only, however, this is not simply a tiebreaker. All three of the remaining candidates would be on the ballot, not just the two tied candidates. Write-in votes are also still in order.
