  Duties of Inspectors of Election

 

Inspectors of election must perform their duties impartially, in good faith, to the best of their abilities, and as expeditiously as practical. As provided for in Civil Code 1363.03(c)(3)&(4), inspectors of election must:
 

  • Determine the number of memberships and the voting power of each;
     
  • Determine the authenticity and effect of proxies, if proxies are used;
     
  • Receive and hold ballots;
     
  • Hear and determine all challenges and questions regarding voting issues [If there are three inspectors, the decision of a majority shall be effective in all respects as the decision of all.];
     
  • Count and tabulate votes (Civil Code 1363.03(f));
     
  • Determine when the polls close [if the election is conducted entirely by means of absentee ballot, the polls may close prior to the meeting date];
     
  • Determine the result of the election [any report made by the inspectors is prima facie evidence of the facts stated in the report] (Civil Code 1363.03(c)(4));
     
  • Perform such acts as may be proper to conduct the election with fairness; and
     
  • Keep custody of the ballots until they are turned over to the association. (Civil Code 1363.03(h))
