We recommend conducting elections “remotely” via conference call software and with the use of proxies, absentee balloting, or electronic voting (depending on what the association’s rules provide) to minimize person-to-person contact and adhere to CDC guidelines regarding social distancing.  Proxies permit a unit owner to appoint a proxyholder to cast a ballot on their behalf in person at the meeting (the same default proxyholder should be used to reduce the number of persons physically present at the annual meeting to cast ballots).  Alternatively, a condominium association may adopt absentee ballot rules and regulations 120 days before an election to conduct the election via absentee balloting without in-person attendance at the annual meeting.
