A question on Operating Procedure...

Item 3.3 describes the election of chairs, "A WG shall, at a minimum, have a Chair and Vice-chair elected from the WG membership by a majority vote of the WG Participants."

Here "majority vote" means that a candidate must get over 50% of votes casted (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majority)??  In that case, if there are several candidates, anyone can get more than 50% of votes.  This results in the second vote (or further).

Or can I understand that this means simple "plurality vote" as described in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plurality_voting_system??  

I strongly recommend to adopt plurality vote for elections in KI activities for simplicity.
