With the new election requirements and potential for unintentional violations, what kind of insurance should inspectors of election have?
I contacted several insurance brokers who specialize in community association insurance and they generally agree that most (but not all
) D&O policies cover volunteers appointed to committees. Inspectors of election should be characterized as being appointed to an "election committee."
You need to verify with your association's insurance broker to make sure your policy covers volunteers. If the association's management company oversees the election, it would be covered by association's insurance if
there is an endorsement to that effect. Third-party companies hired to oversee the election are probably not
covered by the association's insurance. Such companies would need to carry their own errors and omissions insurance.
