How to Confirm Ballot Votes Were Counted Honestly
My condo will be holding a virtual AGM in a few weeks. The resolutions to be decided at the AGM, including election of board members, will be voted on by “restricted proxy” ballots prior to the meeting. Completed ballots are to be scanned/photographed and emailed to the building manager. It has been proposed that one board member and a representative of the management company, possibly the building manager, will count the votes for each resolution on the ballots.
My questions are:
How can owners confirm that the votes were counted honestly? For example, should the ballots be published after the meeting, revealing how each owner voted?
What does the law say about counting votes on “restricted proxy” ballots?
