Nominations within a survey

Recommended Posts

Guest Gina

Our neighbourhood Home Owners Association recently distributed a survey.  One of the questions was "Option A - we would like Wendy to continue as Liaison, or Option B - we would like to nominate ______________ to replace Wendy."  Three of us submitted Jan as a nomination to replace Wendy, however when the results were posted (which were reported to and counted by Wendy only!) the response was that the majority of neighbours opted to continue with Wendy.  The survey input only went to Wendy, so no other neighbours, other than the three who nominated Jan, knew about Jan's nomination.

Should there now be communication to the neighbourhood that there is a nomination and a vote taken to choose between Wendy and Jan?  And should the votes be counted by someone other than Wendy or Jan?

Elections should be conducted according to the rules in your bylaws or the rules in RONR, or both.  What you have described does not bear any resemblance to an election according the the rules in RONR.  Check your bylaws to see if there is any mention of elections by survey.  My money is on No.
