By Eric Glazer, Esq.

I recently represented an individual who lives in a condominium association in Palm Beach County.  He originally lost the election because the following types of votes were not counted:

  1. Exterior envelopes that the association said were forged;

  2. Ballots returned in envelopes other than envelopes provided by the association – but still meet the requirements for a proper envelope.

  3. 3.  Ballots that were not returned in an interior “ballot envelope” but were returned in the larger exterior envelope which was otherwise properly filled out.

After a lengthy arbitration proceeding, and after ordering the parties to meet and open all remaining envelopes, the arbitrator issued a lengthy final order that associations can certainly learn from, especially during our busy election season.
