About North of 60

  1. An organisation wishes to hold their election for executive by electronic ballot. This is somehat covered in the bylaws under s.22(2) which states: 22 (1) A member in good standing is entitled to one vote. (2) Election of incoming directors shall be by electronic or paper ballot managed in a manner deemed appropriate by the director. The election process shall be observed by an independent Returning Officer appointed by the Directors to ensure integrity of the voting process. (3) Voting for special resolutions shall be by electronic or paper ballot managed in a manner deemed appropriate by the director. The voting process shall be observed by an independent Returning Officer appointed by the Directors to ensure integrity of the voting process. (4) All other voting may be conducted at a general meeting by either a show of hands, or a secret ballot, or by electronic means as deemed appropriate by the members present at the meeting. The problem lies in what they are considering "appropriate". Nominations have opened, and one person is being nominated for multiple positions - President, Vice President and Director. Once nominations have closed, voting will take place electronically (whole other question as to who has the ability to see the votes that are cast, but I digress), with a ranking system for each candidate. Just the candidates, and not the position(s) they are running for, is listed on the ballot. What they want to do is look at the total ballots for each candidate, and essentially give the top finisher first dibs at being President. If they have not let their name stand for President, they would be Vice President. The next highest number of votes would get the next position, all the way down the line until all positions are filled. Is this in keeping in any way shape or form with RR? The results are announced at the AGM, with the successful candidates taking their positions from that date. Thanks for any comments you might have.
