 ===== New business ===== ===== New business =====
 +
 +Russ: Nolan has done research and found a website that we can use for voting ( used by CHEA).
 +
 +Not sure if the house wants to do that because some people don’t have as much accessability as others to internet. Russ wants to do it for this election by sending links through this website to the house. Its called ballotbin if anyone wants to look into it.
 +
 +Lauren: How do you know if someone has voted already?
 +
 +Individual is given a link to identify if they’ve voted or not.
 +
 +L: will some people get a paper ballot?
 +
 +R: Yes, seems that it has to be that way.
 +
 +L: if the links were attached to a number and then the number attached to a person it could make more sense?
 +
 +R: my understanding is that once the election is set, I could get links with a one use function.
 +
 +L: what if they lie and say they didn’t do it online when they did and fill a paper ballot too.
 +
 +Carey: in tallying, would there be a way for a 3<​sup>​rd</​sup> ​ party to verify if those are actually the numbers that were received? Because I’m wondering how necessary this is. Seems to raise more questions than issues for us.
 +
 +R: We have to consider accessability for the blind indivisuals here. There’s room for error with anyone who has this task.
 +
 +I make a list to everyone n the co-op and cross their names off the list which took 4 days.
 +
 +It would be more efficiant to do it this way.
 +
 +Donny: We had trouble last election handing ballots out. It took 2 months. IT’s also true that e-voting wont cover everyone here, because of various reasons (language barriers etc.) We will definitely need a hybrid system moving forward.
 +
 +L: It would be easier for the steward to fill out an e-ballot for the individuals without access with them.
 +
 +Hannah: It could increase voting rates.
 +
 +Other new business:
 +
 +Russ: is taking this election to an electronic format a job for the steward?
 +
 +Carey: Cant say, but does know that the running of the elections and how the steward handles it is in the house manual and if it is very different it would have more to do with house policy rather than steward responsibility. ​ It should probably be referred to the house because our rules are set and important to how elections are run.
 +
 +Donny: agrees.
 +
 +Russ: I checked and it doesn’t say anything about electronic format.
