We are holding elections next month and we have two people who would like to run as a unit as co-secretaries.  Is this allowed??  Thanks

No.  The bylaws would have to allow for "co" Secretaries. 

 

You could amend the bylaw to provide for a Corresponding Secretary in addition to the regular Secretary, which will ease the burden on one person doing the total job.

 

"CORRESPONDING SECRETARY. In larger societies, the duties of issuing notices of meetings and conducting the general correspondence of the organization as described under item (9) on page 459 are frequently assigned to a separate elected officer, usually called the corresponding secretary. When there is a corresponding secretary, the unqualified word secretary used alone refers to the recording officer."  RONR (11th ed.), p. 460

Another way to address this is to have a position of "Assistant Secretary", allowing, effectively, them to share the duties.

. . . we have two people who would like to run as a unit as co-secretaries.

Where do people come up with such stuff? And not just one people but two people!
