When a trade union has an election of its officers, are the voters (i.e., the union members) entitled to vote privately (i.e., behind a curtain or by mail) and to have a third-party not under the control of the present union management count the votes?

What law governs this matter?

Most likely, your Union has Bylaws which will tell you how elections are run.

Most times, nominations from the floor are allowed, so no matter who is on the ballot, write-ins are allowed.

And yes, privacy of the ballot is the most important thing in a group.

Read your bylaws and also see if roberts Rules of Order are used.
