Election Laws

Our trained community association attorneys conduct elections, prepare the ballots and other election materials, determine quorum, eligibility, and election requirements, and provide expert legal opinions to address any challenge to an election that might arise.

2006 Was a Big Year for Homeowner Association Elections.

A new law was enacted, was immediately amended but remains complicated. Some provisions override the California Civil Code, the Corporations Code, or community association governing documents which conflict, while other provisions defer to those authorities. Basic voting rules –about proxies, cumulative voting or director qualifications – are changed just a little or not at all. Navigating which parts of the election statutes and the required election rules trump an association's governing documents can be tricky.
