Our bylaws state that in order for a member to be eligible to vote in elections they cannot have missed three consecutive quarterly meetings prior to an election. There are no other guidelines regarding voting eligibility requirements. We know that we will have a contested election for at least one office during our quarterly meeting next week. During the past two weeks, several individuals have submitted new membership forms (eligible persons may join at any time) and some have stated that it was specifically to vote in the elections. Of course, this has caused discussion and opposing viewpoints by the executive board members. I believe that not only would allowing these individuals to vote be unfair to those who have regularly attended the quarterly meetings but that it is also in opposition to the intent of bylaw.
