    Default Board Members Interfering in Annual Election

    In some previous Board of Director elections, we have had Board members make known in writing their negative feelings about candidates who were running for a seat. For example, emailing residents indicating they are looking for someone to oppose another person who has announced their intention to run.

    I would like to revamp our election procedures to prevent this type of behavior, and cause members who do this to be dismissed from the Board. It seems current Board members should not be interfering in the election process.

    Is anyone willing to share language that you have in your bylaws that deals with this?

    Default Re: Board Members Interfering in Annual Election

    You want to stop directors from stating their opinions about other directors who are running for reelection? You want to stop directors from recruiting new candidates? Separate prohibitions, or only when both actions are taken in a single communication?

    Beyond that, as you were told when you posted, laws vary by state.
