  1. Voting Website

    We are a Band Booster organization whose members are comprised of parents/legal guardians of students enrolled in the band program at a public high school. A good number of our eligible actively participating members are unable to attend meetings due to their professions (over the road truck driver, ER Nurse working mostly night shifts, etc.). These individuals have expressed their concern that because they cannot attend meetings that they do not have a way to cast a vote in an Executive Board Election. Our by-laws state that to vote you must be in attendance at the meeting when the voting is taking place and the final section of our by-laws state that Roberts's rules of Order Newly Revised shall be the final authority as to parliamentary procedure. Based on several of the topics of discussion I read on this site - Electronic Voting and/or Absentee is not valid. When Robert's Rules of Order was written I am sure that no one of that time could fathom the technology we now have available. Some of these members wanted to introduce an amendment to our by-laws to be able to use a method of voting via a voting program or website which tracked the members vote under their individual account and the web voting would be closed 30 minutes prior to the start of that meeting. We need a viable voting option to offer these members who truly feel, and for the lack of better word, "Disenfranchised" from the voting process due to their profession and inability to attend meetings in person to vote. What are your thoughts and recommendations.
