Husband and wife double their vote on Maine condo board

I am an owner in a 16 unit condominium in Maine. There are 5 board members. Both state law and our bylaws say that board members must be "unit owners or spouses of unit owners".  At the time of the last election of officers both owners of a single unit were elected to the board of directors. As a result, that one unit has two votes in all board decisions. How should the law and by-laws be interpreted? On one hand the word "or" can be interpreted as meaning one "or" the other but not both. On the other hand, it could mean both. I would be interested in knowing how board members are defined elsewhere.
