Can I see an example of your voting ballots? We are voting for trustee postions.

Axe-u-lee, I don't have one in front of me since we only see them at the annual election and turn them in to be counted and stored by the association after the election is done.

From memory, they're very basic Word documents.

They just have the community name, date, and list of known candidates plus a blank line for write-ins, with check boxes for people to select their choice(s). We have 3 board members and elect one each year (unless something unusual is going on and we need to elect more).

Ohio does not do cumulative voting, and we have one vote per unit, which makes things simple.

People who own more than one unit or who have been named as proxy by other owners receive one ballot for each unit they represent.

The proxy forms are more complicated and legalese-y, with instructions and other verbiage as needed. But the two forms are separate. (Some communities in some states have combined proxy/ballot forms and mail-in voting, but we don't.)

Our attorney has attended some of our annual meetings and conducted the election, so the forms have received his "blessing".

do a simple internet search on "hoa ballot template" and you will see examples.

Attached is a copy in MSWord.

Note, if the attachment shows markups, simply select final under the view tab.
This was modified from the officer manuals I made for our Association.

hope it helps,

Tim

If you actually wanted to see a directed proxy (as some confuse the two), I've attached that here.

By any chance is this manual something you can share?

@TimB4 I am current HOA President and working on binders/manuals for our Board Members/OFficers - up until now there has been little to no organization and you can imagine the results. I would love if you would be willing to share yours that I could use as a reference? My email: [email protected]

Thanks so much and if you prefer not to share I understand that as well.
