Election Procedures

An electronic election will be held in conjunction with the January Virtual Board meeting to determine which individuals will fill the available spaces on the board.

The successful candidates will be elected/re-elected by a simple majority of the board members present at the meeting.

Voting will be accomplished using  an approved voting software for tabulation. No proxy voting will be accepted.

The number of available spaces will be equivalent to 1/3 of the maximum size of the board as defined in the region bylaws.

By way of example, if the size of the Board is 27, the minimum number of available spaces at the January election would be 9.

If there are more individuals running than available spaces, the individuals with the highest number of votes above a simple majority will prevail.

In the case of a tie where there is only one space available, a runoff vote will be held and the individual garnering the most votes will fill the vacancy.

If there is vacancy to be filled due to a Board member stepping down prior to the completion of their three year term.  The candidate receiving the tenth total vote count would fill that vacancy as specified in our By-Laws.

• SECTION 8. A vacancy occurring on the Board of Directors shall be filled at a regular or special meeting of the Board of Directors by a majority vote of the Directors present. The new Director shall serve only the unexpired term of his/her predecessor.
