The HOF chairperson will review all letters of nomination for compliance with the nominating criteria and mail copies of each letter to the HOF voting panel (composed of twenty-five BOD members plus three panel members selected by each BOD member). The ballots will be counted in Reno prior to the March BOD meeting.

Nominees must receive 75% or more positive votes to be elected to the HOF. If no one receives 75% then the one person (or persons, if a tie) who receives at least 65% of the votes will be elected to the HOF. Induction into the HOF will take place at the Grand National Tournament.
