We nominate in April, vote in May. Our by-laws state if only 1 person is running unopposed, a vote is not needed. If 2 or more people are running for the same position, a vote is needed.

You may not get a hugh turn out to vote, but a few will show up. Last year we hit a voting record............ 44 people came (out of 400 families, we thought that was pretty good and sad all at the same time!)

We usually have a meeting in June to announce the "new" officers.

Hither thee to the bookstore and pick up a copy of Robert's Rules of Order, 10th edition or Robert's in Brief. You will find much to know about the nominations and the election process and voting procedures.

I am looking for info on how others might run elections. As a small group of new parents we are new to pto and our bylaws are not specific enough to help.
When do you usually hold elections is your groups?
What is the usual procedure for voting? What if few to no parents show up to vote? Do you hold a transitional meeting at the end of the year?
Thanks in advance for any and all input!!!
