Tie Vote

When there is a vote on officers by secret ballot and one position results in a tie vote but the other offices are decided, what procedure should be followed for breaking the tie vote?  Does the unit vote only on the office that is tied?  Vote on the entire slate again?

The former.

Anyone who is elected remains elected.  But remember, a tie vote is not the only way to not be elected.  If nobody gets a majority of ballots cast (for that office) then nobody is elected by that ballot.

You take a second (third, fourth......nth) ballot on any offices undecided.  Nobody gets dropped unless they withdraw.  Nominations can also be reopened between ballots, and write-ins are always allowed.
