Brys Questions nominated Jyskmark and Hirematia, Helvurium nominated Castillecrest, Hirematia accepted their nomination, and Ramelia nominated themself on 7 July. Castillecrest accepted their nomination; Courelli was nominated by Koiho and accepted their nomination; Jyskmark accepted their nomination; and Ramelia withdrew their candidacy on 8 July. Voting lasted from 15 July to 21 July. Incumbent 14th Delegate Goncar was ineligible to seek another term, as they had served two consecutive terms. Courelli and Jyskmark wrote campaign threads.

There being no majority in the first round, Castillecrest was eliminated and one vote was redistributed to Jyskmark.
