Board Member Elections

Most board members are aware that the inspector of elections for all secret ballot elections, cannot be a member of their board, a candidate for the board of directors, an owner who is related to a member of the board of directors, or anyone under contract with the association. This includes the management company, the association’s attorney, the association’s accountant, or anyone employed by them.

While Coast Management of California, and its affiliates, cannot act as the inspector of elections for Coast clients, we can assist our clients by directing them to Coast’s affiliate website: This website is designed to educate board members concerning all aspects of the secret ballot process to be followed in California.
