Four types of Regional election Decisions are available here:
- Decisions and Directions of Elections (D&DEs) - the Regional Director concludes that the prerequisites to an election have been satisfied and directs that an election be conducted.
- Decisions and Orders (D&Os) - the Regional Director determines that an election should not be conducted and the petition is dismissed.
- Administrative Report on Objections and Challenges - a report resolving post-election objections and/or challenges based on an administrative investigation, which was conducted after the election was held.
- Regional Director Supplemental Decision - a post-election decision regarding objections and/or challenges, including, in some cases, passing on recommendations made by Hearing Officer after a post-election hearing.
A party to the representation case may request review of the decision of the Regional Director by the five-Member Board in Washington, DC.
