Customer Question

I live in condo in Florida with 5 phases. Each phase is independent with respect to financials and rights to vote on improvements to their phase. However, when it comes to voting for a board member the bylaws stipulate that each phase is entitled to their own representative regardless of number of votes. However, if more than one person in the same phase runs for office, the voting is thrown open to all phases. This has resulted in a person being elected from a phase without a majority of that phases votes. In other words, other phases are electing our phase rep.

What is your question please? Are you trying to determine if the practice is legal or are you interested in the process of how to modify the bylaws?
