We discussed improvements to our ballot counting process during the recent Board meeting on Saturday, September 9th. The aim was to enhance the process’s integrity and prevent any potentially fraudulent activities.
Some valuable suggestions were made, such as possibly stamping envelopes and opening them at a neutral location. However, Sue Scrapper pointed out that altering the process at this stage doesn’t seem practical. Our current process offers flexibility for homeowners to submit their ballots through various means, including mail, dropping them off at a box on Sue’s porch, or handing them directly to Sue. Ballots are being received through each of these methods, making it extremely challenging to keep votes confidential, especially for those who choose to hand-deliver their ballots.
We want to emphasize that our current process is designed with integrity in mind, and we are committed to not pre-counting ballots. While it may be difficult not to see how some individuals have voted due to the way ballots are received, please rest assured that no Board member with the exception of the Secretary/Treasurer has access to this information.
We understand the importance of maintaining trust in our community’s processes. Any future changes to the process can be considered through amendments or bylaws adjustments going forward.
