Nonstandard Bylaw Amendment
FROM: Sheila A. Albin, Associate General Counsel
We have no legal objection to the proposed nonstandard bylaw amendment that would extend the voting times at ballot boxes under Article VI, Section 8. The Standard Bylaw Amendments state that “the placement of ballot boxes (locations) and time periods (the hours of the day or number of days that ballot boxes or voting machines will be available for voting) can be adjusted to meet the needs of your credit union.” Federal Credit Union Standard Bylaw Amendments and Guidelines, p. 33.
