To avoid meetings and travel time, many nonprofits use electronic voting instead of a meeting. But are they following the correct procedure according to Michigan law?

Attorney Edward Castellani recently cleared up questions on how to make sure every vote  counts under Michigan law.

“For members or shareholders to vote electronically they must comply with the rules for ballot voting which were adopted in Michigan in the 2015 amendment to the Michigan Nonprofit Corporation Act,” states Castellani.

To take a deeper look into Electronic Voting, the Michigan Business Network will air an interview between Castellani and Cheryl Ronk of “Association Impact” on April 7th at 9 am and 3 pm EST. The show is hosted by the Michigan Society of Association Executives as part of their weekly online radio show. If you are not able to catch the interview on Thursday, a podcast will also be available after April 11th that we will share when available.
