A PRIMER IN RUNNING YOUR CONDO ELECTION
Eric Glazer, Esq.
Published January 20, 2020
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
envelopes that the association said were forged;
returned in envelopes other than envelopes
the association – but still meet the requirements for a
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.
