Trendic concurs on counting
I concur with your opinion titled: “Counting all ballots smart thing to do.”
The issues surrounding this year’s OPA election are unfortunate for all parties involved. However, I would like to point out that the subject of counting all votes should not even be up for a debate or a decision.
All the board and the election committee needs to do is follow our governing documents.
OPA Bylaws, Section 4.06 states: “Robert’s Rules of Order, as they may be revised from time to time, shall be used to regulate and govern the conduct of all official meetings of the members of the association to the extent they are not inconsistent with the Charter or By-laws.”
And Robert’s Rules, Art. VIII. Vote. 46. states: “In reporting the number of votes cast and the number necessary for election, all votes except blanks must be counted.”
