Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
Since the governing documents defeat the board member's election, but are silent as to how the matter should be handled thereafter, it only stands to reason that the person with the next highest number of votes becomes the new board member, and no new election is required. This is because the invalid board member's status as a non-owner simply defeats his standing on the board, but does not defeat the entire election.
