The nominations are over, but no ballots have been issued. The BD. Pres. is going to discuss it more tomorrow. Can my name still be put on the ballot?
I do not know whether your name can be put on the ballot at this point as that would be determined by the specific language of your documents Typically an HOA member would need to be nominated in order to challenge the interpretation of such a rule - but again it would depend upon the language in your specific documents.
I was nominated at the Dec. mtg., but the Board didn't except it when someone read the By-Law. It was afterwards that the Pres. said he would look into it on Tues. (1/3).
Then it appears that you have preserved your rights to challenge the Board's action
