Voting at the offical membership meeting is based on the honor system. We’ll ask everyone to use a shared Riseup pad to enter the names of all the memberships they are authorized to vote on behalf of.
So, you can proxy for anyone who asks you to, and we will take your word for it. And Nathan - if you are looking for someone to proxy your vote, I would be happy to - or you can ask any other member.
There will be only ONE vote that is taken at the live meeting, which is: Do you authorize the organization to conduct the election of our board of directors by online voting? I know! It’s ridiculous, but New York state law says you have to elect the board at a live meeting, so we need to officially have our members say: no, that’s cool, we can do the vote via a one week online voting period.
Assuming this is approved, then we send out the link and code by email so you can vote for the board of directors, by-law changes and rank our priorities via a web site at your leisure over a one week period.
