Our Community board, and management company have decided, that at this years annual election of new Board Members,that no nominations will be taken from the floor at the meeting . This situation is not addressed at all, in our BY-laws. Is this legal?. We have always had voting by mail for those who intend to run, by Proxies, and by nominations from the floor.
Any input is appreciated.

I have no idea how large your community is or how active your HOA during election time. What I do know is that I have been through about 12 elections in 2 States and I have never seen anyone nominated from the floor of the Annual meeting much less get elected.

My only suggestion for the board would be limit changes to elections to resolve issues not just because since it make the owners nervous.

Since CA implemented voting by mail back in '06, we've had nominations form the floor maybe twice years ago. No one obiter now as there's no chance of th candidate being elected. But our Bylaws do require it so even year at the anneal meeting we have to ask if there are any nominations form the membership.

So I'd suggest that if not required by your Bylaws nor by FL state law, dump that practice.

If the Bylaws call for such to happen, it must happen. It is that simple.
