Remove Cumulative Voting

Amendment

Bylaw Amendment to Remove Cumulative Voting  


Background

The stability of the governing board depends on balanced representation of the membership within the community. This can be hampered by both the ability for interested groups to collect proxies, and encourage cumulative voting to elect a candidate of their choice. This process, when coupled with the 2-year terms and annual elections has led to a new board every year that can radically change the course of the community every year based on the actions of a minority of members. This measure is proposed based on member feedback and industry standards that recommend the elimination of the outdated practice of cumulative voting.
