Nominations for elected positions will be open between May 4 and May 28. A full list of approved nominees will then be published on June 1, and elections held at the convention on June 8. Candidates must submit nomination applications in order to be eligible for election.

Platform submissions and nominations for delegates to the National Convention will follow the same timelines.
