Getting members to participate in board member elections can be very difficult. However, the more convenient you make the process, the more likely members are to participate. Electronic voting is not only convenient, but it can also save the association money.

The Board must adopt a rule to allow for electronic voting at least 120 days before the board election. If an electronic voting rule is adopted for board elections, unit owners may not vote by proxy in board elections but may vote only by submitting an association-issued ballot in person at the election meeting.

Additional requirements for an electronic voting rule include:

  1. Instructions for electronic voting must be distributed to all unit owners between 10 and 30 days before the election meeting
  2. The instruction notice must include the names of all candidates
  3. The instruction notice must give unit owners at least 21 days before the deadline for nominating a candidate
  4. The instructions must explain that votes can still be cast in person
