HOA elections practice is questioned

For the last two elections,  our HOA has taken to nominating the same number of candidates as there are positions open, then announcing at the annual meeting that there are no nominations or voting necessary, as they have the required number of candidates to fill the open slots. Is this legal, and/or how can it be challenged?

Quorum requirement for a condo council of members' annual/election meeting: Which one rules?

Which is right for a quorum?

1. A State condominium statute states: "Unless the bylaws provide otherwise, a quorum is deemed present throughout any meeting of the council of unit owners if persons entitled to cast 25 percent of the total number of votes appurtenant to all units are present in person or by proxy."


2. A condo's bylaws state: "Except as may otherwise be provided herein or by statute, votes appurtenant to units constituting at least a majority of the votes appurtenant to all units shall constitute a quorum for the adoption of decisions."

Is the quorum requirement 1. 25 percent or 2. A majority of condo unit owners?

How many HOA units do we need for a quorum?

We are in Florida.  We are having a meeting to vote for a new board. There are only eight units. How many unit owners do we need to have a quorum

How does our condo association define a quorum?

We have an election on January 14th for the condo board. Bylaws say we need 40% quorum - number of voters to vote. However condo docs say 20%. Which one is correct? 

Outside attorney involved in co-op elections

I live in a Connecticut coop. Our attorney had to assist in our election where a new president was voted in. Its been 2 weeks and the old president has not signed over the accounts. The attorney said he would speak with her but has not gotten back to the board. Its clear that the attorney is not looking out for the best interest for the coop but what can we do as a board to make the old president sign over the accounts and all the coop's documents? Should we ask the help of the Attorney General?


Can we nominate more condo association board members?

I am on the nominating committee for the next board selection. There are two openings. Do we only name two for nominating, or can we recommend more, therefore giving the association a choice?

How to elect New York HOA board members?

Is this how we elect HOA board members?

I am president of our association and last year one board member was removed from his post and was replaced with the next person with the most amount of votes from the election. The position she filled is up next year. Two of the board members want her to run again this year and I think because she was the one next in line she should be able to fill out the remainder of the term. I would like a quick response as we are having our general meeting in less then a week. Thanks for listening to my complaint.


Our HOA takes votes by email

Our board and management company is discussing situations and taking votes by email. I know Florida statutes made this illegal in 2010. Has this changed and can votes now be made by email? I understand the ease and less time spent for meetings. However, the decisions would not be recorded in minutes or open for all owners to hear.

I really want an HOA election by secret ballot!

If the HOA election was conducted without a secret ballot and the management company with the HOA were warned to cancel the election but they did it anyway what recourse do owners have to request a recall the election results and request a legal secret ballot?
