secret ballot vs show of hands


Recommended Posts

Normally, re-electing board members to another term is a formality done by a show of hands. This time we expect that one member may not be re-elected. When it's time for the vote, do we need to make a motion, second, and vote to cast paper ballots, or can someone simply request it to make it happen???

A majority vote is required if you want to order a vote by ballot (which is the recommended method for elections anyway).

And check your bylaws. Very often a ballot vote is required (as in the sample bylaws in RONR) whether the incumbents are being challenged or not.
