Voting season starts in late April or early May. Shows may be proposed for any slot at any time, but they may not be voted on until the GM decides to hold elections. Traditionally, the person proposing the show wants to direct the proposal, but proposals have come from technical directors, producers, and actors. To be eligible for election the proposer must meet 2 criteria: she must have copies of the script in the theater two weeks prior to the election, and she must have a producer willing to commit to the show. The election process seems complicated, but in essence, any show which receives a 2/3 majority of votes in a particular slot is chosen for that slot. If there is no clear winner, the show with the least votes is dropped from the ballot, and the slot is voted again. "No Show" is always an voting option, and does not indicate a desire to shut the theater down for that slot, but that the available choices are unacceptable to him or her. A show running unopposed must still receive 2/3 of the vote against "No Show" to be chosen. If no show wins a 2/3 majority after 3 ballots, the process is repeated at the next GM, and all shows which were dropped are eligible again. cite: hitw.org
