Amendment to cover new voters and challenges to ballots
Thanks to John Murphy for taking the time to write this out!
I - Voting Requirements:
Before any prospective voter will be allowed the franchise, the following prerequisites must be met.
3) The Ballot Committee will review each prospective voter’s qualifications and their compliance with the voter requirements, and if the requirements are met, the voter will be granted a ballot.
If one of the voters challenges a ballot (and is then seconded by another voter), it goes before the committee to be reviewed. If the committee decides to kill it, the group as a whole can then veto the committee’s action with a supermajority (67%) vote.
Valid reasons for challenging a ballot include (but are not limited to):
*Incompetence (voting for Tom Brookens, for example)
When a committee member’s term is up, he may run for re-election (or have his membership re-upped if no one challenges him). The first four members of the committee will receive terms of 3, 5, 7 and 9 elections, so that we’ll have one spot coming open every other election (once a month in real time), and so that we don’t have complete turnover at any point.
I think we’ve come to the point where we have to formalize the process somewhat. Like any ‘company’ when there’s only a few people you don’t need much documented, but as things grow, more things need to be formalized. We’ve only seen a few minor issues to date, but as always, we try to nip things in the bud before they become problematic.
As always, feel free to comment, or offer up a better mousetrap if you have one! But no mousetrap isn’t an option any longer.
