SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Mediation Board is correcting 
its proposed rule published in the Federal Register on May 15, 2012 at 
77 FR 28536. This document makes a correction to clarify that Rule 
1206.1 only applies in elections where 3 or more options receive valid 
votes.

Correction

    In FR Doc. No. 2012-11770, on page 28537, in the right column, the 
text for Sec.  1206.1 is correctly revised to read as follows:


Sec.  1206.1  Run-off elections.

    (a) In an election among any craft or class where three or more 
options (including the option for no representation) receive valid 
votes, if no option receives a majority of the legal votes cast, or 
in the event of a tie vote, the Board shall authorize a run-off 
election.
    (b) In the event a run-off election is authorized by the Board, 
the names of the two options which received the highest number of 
votes cast in the first election shall be placed on the run-off 
ballot, and no blank line on which voters may write in the name of 
any organization or individual will be provided on the run-off 
ballot.
    (c) Employees who were eligible to vote at the conclusion of the 
first election shall be eligible to vote in the run-off election 
except:
    (1) Those employees whose employment relationship has 
terminated; and
    (2) Those employees who are no longer employed in the craft or 
class.
