NO QUORUM FOR PAST FOUR YEARS
QUESTION: I have been a board member three times. The last four years our annual election was held by mail. We never had a quorum. Do we need a new election or can we count the original ballots at the next meeting?
ANSWER: Sorry, you cannot carry over ballots from year to year until you get enough to hold a meeting. Ballots count for the election for which they were noticed (and any adjournments of that year’s meeting). Consequently, you need to issue a new notice and new ballots for each annual election.
