During the course of this meeting the YPG holds elections for both Officer positions for the Executive YPG committee and for YPG Council positions. These elections are governed in accordance with the BCS regulations and with specific YPG regulations, these include the YPG's constitution and Council and committee election procedures.

All YPG members attending the AGM either in person or electronically who are AMBCS or above should be able to vote during the meeting on any matter put before the meeting. Candidates will make their presentations or have a statement read on their behalf before their election is put to a vote in the meeting with the successful candidate for chair being nominated to BCS Community Board for ratification. There will now be no poll held online for those unable to attend the meeting in person or electronically, so the result could be declared by the current Chair or acting Chair in their absence after voting is concluded before moving on to the next item of business.
