Please Vote.


Our system of needing a majority of the ballots cast  allows our Membership to NOT vote for a candidate.  For example:  A candidate runs on a platform to sell the Co-op to Walmart.  This candidate receives 20 votes out of 500 ballots cast.  In a system where you just need the most votes cast, as in our situation were we have the same amount of candidates as openings for a full Board, this candidate would gain a seat.  In our system, you would need 251 votes to gain a seat ensuring that the Membership's voice is heard.  If there are open seats after the election, the  Board Members can appoint folks until the next election.
