QUESTION: If the association is using noncumulative voting and has five candidates for three positions, what if an owner puts an x or check in the box for only one candidate and leaves all the other blank. Is the ballot valid?
ANSWER: Yes, it's valid. The inspector of elections counts one vote for that candidate and no votes for the others.
