Recalling and redoing a BOD election

Recommended Posts

Our National club held an election. Voting was conducted on line hosted by an independent firm. 

The VP assisted the Secretary with setting up the List of members and the election on the site. She was one of the candidates running against another person.

There were some emails changed (one allowing a member to cast two ballots by voting for his recently deceased spouse) and Members added (and most removed) who joined after the cut off time for participating in the election. These actions were done by the VP

Election has been completed, but results not released 

The question is can the Election be redone?  Should the VP be charged with tampering?

For starters, do the bylaws authorize online voting? (The rest of this response assumes the answer is Yes.)

If it is in fact correct that votes were cast by persons who were not eligible to vote, and those votes can be identified, those votes should simply be removed and the results adjusted accordingly.

If these votes cannot be identified, and the number of such votes cast is sufficient that they could have changed the outcome of one or more offices, the election should be redone only for those offices which are so affected. The election should not be redone if the number of such votes cast are not sufficient that they could have changed the outcome.

In any event, only the society itself may make this determination, unless the society or its rules have delegated this task to another body, such as the board.

That is at the society’s discretion. See FAQ #20 for information concerning the process.
