Election Process - Internet Voting
FROM: Sheila A. Albin, Associate General Counsel
You have asked for our opinion on a proposed nonstandard bylaw amendment that would permit the FCU’s members to vote over the Internet. As explained in the attached memorandum [redacted] dated September 19, 1995, we have no legal objection to modernized voting procedures. I have attached for your information a nonstandard amendment that allowed for voting by telephone. It includes some safeguards that may be helpful in drafting a nonstandard amendment for voting on the Internet.
