The Official RONR Q & A Forums

Recommended Posts

It may be obvious but I’m looking for something to support challenging the following.  Our Association will hold the Annual Homeowners Meeting very soon.  A current Board member is up for re-election at this meeting.  However, this same Board member has been going to homeowners to solicit their Proxy forms.  These Proxies will be given to the Association Secretary and she will cast votes for this Board member to be re-elected.  To complicate this further, there is someone else who will be running however, the individuals who have already gave their Proxy don’t know this.  I’m looking for recommendations on how to challenge this inappropriate activity.

I'm afraid you won't find any suggestions here as RONR doesn't deal with proxies, other than to say they have to be authorized in your bylaws, which would or should include any special rules about them.

Yes, proxies are authorized by the bylaws but do not address the one up for re-election being prohibited from collecting them.  We feel it's a blatant conflict of interest.

I would call it "campaigning."  There is no rule against it in RONR.

Indeed. What is "inappropriate" about soliciting votes for oneself?

That is a political / ethical problem, not one of parliamentary procedure.

It is also one of the reasons, I suspect, that RONR avoids the whole issue of proxies.  They are legal documents, not parliamentary .
