Since registrations opened for applications to run in the elections on 1st January 2010, four representatives of member nations have applied to run for the position of Secretary-General. Applications closed on the 14th January.
The elections are conducted by the OAMEC (Organisation of Active Micronations Election Committee), which is made up of three volunteer member nations who are not running candidates in the elections, to ensure that no electoral tampering takes place.
The type of voting being used is known as 'ranked pairs' voting.
