Uncontested Elections for Board Members
If the number of nominees for election to the board of directors of a homeowner association is equal to or less than the member of positions available, the election is considered uncontested only if the association bylaws and election rules expressly prohibit write-in candidates and nominations from the floor. Even if the odds of having a write-in candidate or person nominated from the floor, being elected is less than one - percent, an election must be held. Otherwise, the board can be accused of denying a member of his or her rights.
If an election is truly uncontested, balloting can be waived, and the nominees elected by acclamation.
