Is a 'ballot' distributed in advance to members with pre-printed choices (not by the secretary) valid and can it be considered a write-in ballot even though those who used it didn't actually write it in themselves? We have had an election coup orchestrated by a group who created an amended ballot by stapling this 'write-in' section and distributed it to a select group of members.
Our by laws do not mention "write-in's" for voting. it does says a person can only be nominated for one postion,and can only hold one postion. There is a question between nominated and running for an office and the definition of write in. I was under the impression that write-in's were for open slots(no one nominated or running) and if a person was on the ballot for a postion already they would not be a write in for a second postion. Please could anyone clarify this. Thank You
The write-in candidate received 80% of the vote and was declared the winner on Voting Day by the Election Chair and Presiding Officer. There were three times the quorum required. The vote 'takes effect' in a few weeks, at the final meeting of the year.
