  ELECTION RULES


Election Rules. All associations are required to adopt election rules that comply with the requirements contained in the Davis-Stirling Act. We provide the following:

  • nomination procedures

  • candidate qualifications

  • a method of selecting independent third parties as inspectors of election

  • rules regarding access to association media during campaigns

  • rules regarding access to common area meeting space during campaigns

  • secret balloting procedures

  • a ballot form

Bylaw Election Amendments. We can also review your governing documents and prepare bylaw amendments plus a ballot to send to your members. The amendments will do the following:

  • eliminate quorum requirements for the election of directors;

  • eliminate cumulative voting to create more conventional voting, i.e., casting no more than one vote for each candidate--the same election process used in city, state and national elections;

  • modify nomination procedures to comply with the new statute;

  • make floor nominations optional so elections can be conducted entirely through the mail if associations wish to do so;

  • create director qualifications; and

  • create two-year staggered terms for directors to ensure continuity from board to board.

ASSISTANCE: Associations that need to update their bylaws and election rules should contact us.To stay current with issues affecting community association, subscribe to the Davis-Stirling Newsletter.
