Canon 956

1. In elections, unless other provisions are made by common

law, that action has the force of law which, when a majority of

those who have to be convoked are present, receives an absolute

majority of those who are present, or, after two indecisive ballots, receives a relative majority in the third ballot; if, however, the votes are equal after the third ballot, the person who

is senior by age is considered elected, unless it is a question

of elections among clerics alone or religious, in which cases

that person is to be deemed elected who is senior by sacred ordination, or, among religious, the person who is senior by first

profession. 2. The person who presides at the election is to

proclaim who has been elected.
