Our organization held its annual officers' election earlier this month. Only one person ran for each office, president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. The affirmative votes were unanimous for all candidates, there was no one nominated from the floor. The Nominating Committee found out a few days later that another member who was asked to be a candidate actually said yes, but the NC chair didn't understand the member was giving her consent because a lot of back and forth was happeningin the conversation. Per our bylaws, when the slate was announced this person could have nominated herself from the floor but did not. How would you handle this situation. Do we redo the election and add this person to the slate? Should we just redo an election for just the position this member was seeking adding both her name and the name of the other nominee? Is there a motion one has to make to repeat an election? Or do we chalk it up to a misunderstanding and let the election stand as is?
