Priority Ballot

What is it?

The Priority Ballot is vote which we ask all confirmed delegates to participate in which determines the order the zonesare debated in  (except Priority Zone which is always first and AGM which is always last), and the order which the motions are discussed in each zone. Through this ballot delegates determine which are the most important motions for debate. Conference aims to get through as many motions as possible but it is not always possible to get through all the motions in each Zone, which is why the priority ba llot is important.
