1.    All Authorized Voter Members, one per household, have the right to vote.  It is recommended that Members review the Declarations of Covenants and the Association By-Laws before the meeting.

2.    If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may vote by proxy or by absentee ballot. The Proxy (section 3.04.) and/or Absentee Ballot (Section 3.05.) must be filed in writing three days before, (by Friday June 20, 2014), the meeting with your authorized representative and/or the Secretary.

3.    Quorum. Section 4.07.  Except as otherwise provided in these By-Laws, the presence in person, by Absentee Ballot or by Proxy of Owners having 51% of the total Authorized Voting Owners shall constitute a Quorum at all meetings of the Owners.  We need 14 owner representatives.

4.    Majority vote Section 4.08.

  • a.    Members of the Board elected at any meeting of the Owners shall, except as otherwise provided by law, or these By-Laws, be elected by a simple majority of Authorized Votes cast (14 minimum). 
    b.    All other actions should be taken by vote of Owners by majority of Authorized Votes cast at a meeting at which a quorum shall be present or represented by Absentee Ballot or Proxy.  (8 votes minimum)
    c.     The term “simple majority of Owners” shall mean those Authorized Voting Owners having 51% or more of the total Authorized Votes cast in person, by Absentee Ballot or by Proxy and voting at any meeting of Owners determined in accordance with these By-Laws.  For example, if 14 owners are represented, than 51% of the vote (8) would be sufficient to move forward on an issue.

5.    We have tried to follow the By-Laws and Declarations as closely as possible, avoiding some of the legalese language for better clarity. However all the Sections and Articles have been noted.

6.    We will have a sign in sheet of all Authorized Voters (one per home) and follow parliamentary procedure in this meeting.
